About this Item

Scarce second issue with five line colophon. Charming original illustration throughout by Joseph Schindelman. Includes the infamous Oompa-Loompa illustrations (excised in later editions). Dk. red full cloth boards, embossed title design at front board, gilt spine titles, lt. shelf wear, discoloration. Chocolate colored top-stain. Pages fine; small address label behind front flap. Mustard endpapers; front endp. slightly offset. Bind solid, moderate cant; hinges fully intact. Facsimile wrapper matching first edition design, fine; protected in new clear sleeve. Very attractive. Solid, original example. Concerning the adventures of four nasty children and Our Hero with Mr. Willy Wonka and his famous candy plant. Darkly humorous, slightly creepy, and ultimately the tale of a nice guy who just might finish first, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is one of the prolific Roald Dahl's most popular works. Life changes for a poor but kindhearted boy named Charlie Bucket when he manages to win one of five golden tickets that allows him and a guest of his choice to tour the chocolate factory of an eccentric and reclusive candy inventor named Willy Wonka. On the big day, Charlie and the other visitors are warned to obey all of Mr. Wonka's strict, but rather strange, rules for behavior. What will happen if they disobey? And why has Mr. Wonka allowed them to tour his factory in the first place? Introduces readers to such unforgettable characters as the hardworking Oompa-Loompas, the extremely spoiled Veruca Salt, and, as readers will soon discover, the aptly named Violet Beauregarde. 162 pages. Insured post. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 018012
