Charlie and The Chocolate Factory. ** SOLD **
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
New York: Knopf, 1964.
First edition, 'third issue'.
Not the 'first state' but 'third', with cream boards, green end papers and four-line colophon on last page.
With the original drawings of Oompa-Loompas, which were removed from later editions for being too racist.
Hardcover boards and clipped jacket have slight wear.
Very early printing of a classic children's book, perfect apart from owner dedication. ** SOLD **
