A very rare find-a 1st Edition Roald Dahl-Fantastic Mr.Fox.

Published by George Allen Unwin in 1970,beautifully illustrated by Donald Chaffin.

ISBN-0 04 823096 5

Unfortunately,this very scarce book has also been illustrated by a much younger and rather less talented artist. . . . ..please see front cover photo!I don't know if the biro labelling on the front cover of the 3 pigs can be removed-it may be possible.Inside there is an attempt to add some more detail to the first illustration and 'colouring in' in biro.It's not too intrusive-but rather annoying!

There's a neat inscription to the first page dated 1972,some of the pages have small top edge folds.Has light foxing to the page edges when closed which doesn't really impact onto the pages as it is generally clean and bright.

Hardback,laminated boards,with a few small imprints to the back cover.
Very minor bumping to top / bottom of spine which is completely intact.There is a very small edge tear to the bottom left of page 15 and 17, with the binding visible but still very much intact.

63pp with white,clean endpapers.

If you're looking at this,you'll know how much this scarce 1st edition would usually fetch.Start price is to reflect the issues concerning the additional 'illustrations!' . . . . . . still a real bargain and a wonderful addition to a collection.

Am hoping to get around to listing more delightful vintage children's books over the next few weeks-so do pop back and check out my other items.

From a smoke free home-Thanks for looking!
