First edition, first printing. Publisher's original pictorial boards. Illustrated throughout in black and white by Donald Chaffin. An excellent near fine copy, the binding firm and bright with just a touch of fading to the red lettering on slightly rolled spine. The contents are clean throughout and without inscriptions or stamps, the closed text block edge with just a couple of foxing spots. A very attractive example.
The uncommon British first edition of the tale of Fantastic Mr Fox and his farmer neighbours Boggis, Bunce and Bean. The basis of several successful screen and stage adaptations including the 2009 Wes Anderson animated classic featuring voiceovers from George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Bill Murray and Michael Gambon.
