New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964. Joseph Schindelman. First edition. Octavo, 161 pages, with profuse black and white drawings by Joseph Schindelman. This is the true first edition (the English edition was not published until 1967), and is the first issue, with six lines of printing information on the last page, a price of $3.95 on the dustjacket, mustard endpapers, and no ISBN on the rear dustjacket panel. As called for in the first issue, the Oompa-Loompas are black, not orange or white. This copy is internally fine, without names, inscriptions or marks of any kind. It is bound in burgundy cloth with a title medallion stamped in blind on the front panel and a spine title in gilt. The top edge is stained pale plum. There is possibly a hint of fingerprints on the rear panel near the outside margin. Two dustjackets are included, the original and a facsimile. The original dustjacket is complete and without tears or nicks, though there is a crease at the top of one flap and light wear to spine ends. However, the jacket shows considerable soil and foxing on both front and back. The facsimile dustjacket is new and perfect. An extremely good copy.
