Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Illustrated by Joseph Schindelman.
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964 - Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in blind, yellow endpapers, red top-stain. With the dust jacket. Housed in a purple morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery with decorative multi-coloured title and chocolate bar inlay to front cover. Lettering at spine mildly rubbed, occasional spotting to pages. A very good copy in the dust jacket that has wear to ends of spine, tiny chip to front top edge, closed tear to lower front edge. A very attractive copy. Illustrations throughout. First edition, first printing, with the six-line colophon on the final page which was cut to five in subsequent printings. Presentation copy inscribed upside down by the author on the rear endpaper, "To William love from Roald, Oct 12 1979". Inscribed first edition copies of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are uncommon, as he normally only inscribed books for those close to him.
