New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1970
First edition. First printing, with “First Edition” on the copyright page and 003009 on the dust jacket flap. Illustrations by Donald Chaffin. A crisp, fine copy. In a very good, unclipped dust jacket, showing a couple of small nicks and closed tears, as well as a little mark from sticker removal on the front panel. A beautiful copy overall. Dahl’s beloved children’s book tells the story of three mean, dimwitted farmers, outwitted by a sly fox who steals food from their land to provide for his family. The subject of several stage and film adaptations, most notably Wes Anderson’s animated comedy in 2009.
