One of the beloved Dickens seasonal Christmas tales, this example is a scarce 1st edition, 2nd impression with original red cloth binding &  gilt decorative detail on spine and front board. Striking second issue engraved vignette frontispiece and half-title page. Complete with beautiful illustrations throughout the text. VG condition throughout, with unmarked text, some  occasional finger soiling; shelfwear to covers, with slight rubbing and minor chipping to upper and lower sping (see photos); gilt-edged text block. First edition of the Dickens Christmas Books are increasingly rare, and especially difficult to find in such nice overall condition with original red cloth binding. 174 pp.
 
Please see photographic description for more detail, and do not hesitate to contact me with additional questions.
 
I will be listing all of the first edition Charles Dickens Christmas stories soon, in original red cloth, including A CHRISTMAS CAROL (Bradbury & Evans 1st state!), THE CHIMES, and THE BATTLE FOR LIFE. Please check back regularly, and take a moment to browse the many other antiquarian books I have on auction this week!
