Laminated Pictorial Boards with similar, but not identical, pictorial Dust-jacket. All delightfully illustrated by Quentin Blake. Near Fine/Near Fine. Bought New and stored away and is Unused/Unread, but I have not marked it as New as it still has the sellers 'security tag' (under a slim small white square of paper - ( 2" x 2" / 5cm x 5cm) under the bottom of the rear flap on the rear pastedown. This can't be seen unless you lift the flap. The dust-jacket has a little light 'shelfwear' from storage, a few light smudges / 'marks' which are only seen if held up to the light, and one small 'closed' tear (0.5" / 1.5cm. - repaired to the rear with clear archive tape) to the top of the rear flap corner, but o/w the book is MINT. The d/j is now in a new protective clear - removable - bookfilm plastic cover and looks Near As NEW. Slim 4to. 19.9cm x 27.0 cm. (6) + 122 pages. Plain gold endpapers and illustrated throughout with COLOUR drawings by Quentin Blake. 'As New' internally. The Very First Ouentin Blake Illustrated Edition was published in 1995, but in the smaller 8vo format and with fewer illustrations in b/w only. This is a Fine, Tight, Bright copy. NOT Price Clipped, NOT Inscribed - UNUSED. "First published in the United Kingdom in 1967, 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' has become one of the most popular children's books of all time. To celebrate its thirtieth birthday, this beautiful gift edition was specially created for a new generation of children, delightfully illustrated for the first time in full colour by Quentin Blake, Roald Dahl's own favourite illustrator." . Apart from the very minor flaws as noted above, this is a Lovely NEAR as new copy. See Images. ; 4to 10" - 12" tall
