Roald Dahl

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl - First American Edition

  • Illustrator: Joseph Schindelman
  • Published/Imprint: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc


US first edition, first impression (Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., 1964) with six-line colophon on the final page, as opposed to the five lines corresponding to subsequent impressions. Signed, inscribed and dated by the author to a bookplate affixed to the title page: 'With lots of good wishes, Roald Dahl 1974". Precedes the UK edition, which was published three years later. Rare in this condition bearing a unique inscription from the author. Slight pushing to spine tips with some residue to front endpaper from a removed bookplate; boards in very fine and clean condition indeed, as are contents - near fine. Original and unclipped dust jacket (bearing price of $3.95) has very minor and occasional traces of wear to top edge; a couple of very small areas of mild rubbing to spine panel; small and unobtrusive scratch to rear panel - near fine or better. A beautiful, near fine copy overall.
