CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY," BY ROALD DAHL. 1ST EDITION, 1964, THIRD STATE, BEFORE THE 1973 EDITION WHICH CHANGED THE PYGMIES PART IN THE STORY, (PAGES 72, 73, 74.) THIS EDITION IS HARD TO FIND WITH A DUST COVER, MOSTLY BECAUSE IT STILL HAS THE PYGMIES, BEFORE IT BECAME POLITICALLY INCORRECT. THIS EDITION HAS THE MUSTARD COLOR FABRIC 1 QUARTER, WITH CREAM PAPER COVER. THE CREAM EDGES HAVE TANNING AND WEAR. THE BOOK NAME IS EMBOSSED, AS USUAL.THERE ARE 162 PAGES, PLUS COLOPHON OF FOUR LINES ON BACK PAGE. THE PAGES ARE CLEAN AND LOVELY, WITH NO TEARS, NO FOLDS, NO ODORS, AND NO WRITING EXCEPT FOR THE OWNER'S BOOKPLATE ATTACHED TO BACK ENDPAPER. NOW, THE BAD NEWS- THE DUST JACKET IS IN VERY POOR CONDITION, AND THE WORST, THE OWNER GLUED BOTH FOLDS OF THE DUST JACKET TO THE INNER BOARDS ! NO INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING, THANK YOU! SHIPPING INCLUDES TRACKING.
