DAHL, Roald. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964. Octavo, original blind-stamped red cloth, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box.

First edition, first issue, of Dahl’s deliciously delightful tale of magic and morality, with numerous in-text illustrations by Joseph Schindelman.

Charlie earned for its author a cult following among child readers… Dahl has been called a literary genius; his books have been considered modern fairy tales” (Silvey, 186). “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is already a great classic work… [and] one of the most enduring post-war children’s books… Dahl is undeniably special” (Connolly, 102). First issue, in full red cloth and with six lines of publishing information on last page (instead of five). First-issue dust jacket, with no ISBN number on rear panel.

Book fine, dust jacket with slight soiling, tiny closed tear to top of rear panel toward spine head. A lovely copy in about-fine condition.
