HAMILTON, pp. 108-109, "Rackham's book for Christmas 1915 in a mood of national anxiety and tragedy of wartime. This was the first Dickens story Rackham had attempted .Rackham voluntarily softened his interpretation of this story in a way he might not have done eight years earlier, or indeed twenty years later with Poe's TALES," as a temper to the times.
