Charlie and The Chocolate Factory

By Dahl, Roald

Prices starting at $0.99

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (1964) is a children's book by Norwegian-British author Roald Dahl. This story is an adventures of young Charlie Bucket inside the chocolate factory of eccentric candymaker Willy Wonka. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was first published in the United States by Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. in 1967, and in the United Kingdom by George Allen & Unwin in 1967. The book was adapted into two major motion pictures: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory in 1971, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in 2005. The book's sequel, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, was written by Roald Dahl in 1972. The story was originally inspired by Roald Dahl's experience of chocolate companies during his schooldays. Cadbury would often send test packages to the schoolchildren in exchange for their opinions on the new products. At that time Cadbury and Rowntree's were England's two largest chocolate makers, and they each often tried to steal trade secrets by sending spies into the other's factory, posing as employees. Because of this, both companies became highly protective of their chocolate making processes. It was a combination of this secrecy and the elaborate, often gigantic, machines in the factory that inspired Roald Dahl to write Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Dahl, Roald

1F: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 1964. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. This specific book is in fine condition with a cranberry cloth over hard board cover that has sharp edges/corners and a tight binding. This is a very scarce, unread version of this book with the tightness of the binding indicating such. The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased. The most significant flaw regarding this copy is the dust jacket in that it has a 1/4 inch triangular chunk missing from the bottom front edge which has been taped over. The balance of the dust jacket is in near fine condition with minimal edge wear or scuffing. This is a remarkable book and is in fine/unread condition. ; This book is the true first edition, first printing of this classic childrens book. The verification of such is in the six line colophon on the last page of the book, the use of the text and images of the "Oompa-Loompa", and the burgandy-colored top edge die. Images of any or all of these features are available on request. ; 1 x 8.3 x 5.8 Inches; 162 pages .

(correct colophon and no isbn #). Illus. in b&w by Joseph Schindelman. Later copies have the same original published price but have the ISBN # on rear cover amongst other indicators that they are not first, thus proving that the price is not the determinant of edition. Even later editions change the nature of the Oompa-Loompas who are portrayed as stereotypical Blacks in the first edition. LAID IN IS A TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY DAHL. Done on his personal stationary, dated 1975, written to an American elementary school class. It is a charming and personal 10 line letter boldly signed by him in blue ink (creased on right margin, a closed tear). This is a special copy, scarce.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Dahl, Roald

1F: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc. Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 1964. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. This specific book is in fine condition with a cranberry cloth over hard board cover that has sharp edges/corners and a tight binding. This is a very scarce, unread version of this book with the tightness of the binding indicating such. The pages are clean, crisp, unmarked and uncreased. The most significant flaw regarding this copy is the dust jacket in that it has a 1/4 inch triangular chunk missing from the bottom front edge which has been taped over. The balance of the dust jacket is in near fine condition with minimal edge wear or scuffing. This is a remarkable book and is in fine/unread condition. ; This book is the true first edition, first printing of this classic childrens book. The verification of such is in the six line colophon on the last page of the book, the use of the text and images of the "Oompa-Loompa", and the burgandy-colored top edge die. Images of any or all of these features are available on request. ; 1 x 8.3 x 5.8 Inches; 162 pages .
