First UK edition, first printing. Signed by the illustrator. Publisher's original laminated pictorial boards. Illustrated throughout by Faith Jacques. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm with the laminate intact, the spine panel a touch faded. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. A few pages have a faint ripple or bump at the top edge, not affecting the text. Publisher's original price sticker to the rear board (£1.25) as called for. A very attractive example.
Signed and dated 1973 by the illustrator Faith Jacques in black ink on the front endpaper. Scarce thus. The sequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
