Author / Artist:

Dickens, Charles


London: Chapman and Hall. 1890


Early printing of the combined edition. With 21 illustrations by Maclise, Stanfield, F. Stone, Leech and Tenniel. Publisher's dark blue cloth, the author's initials stamped in blind to the upper board and titles in gilt to the spine. A better than very good copy, the binding square and tight, the contents with some spotting to the prelims and text block edge are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. An attractive example of Dickens' Christmas Books.
