About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: A Christmas Carol, by Shophound [or] ...

Publication Date: 1931

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: Very Good+


A sweet little hand-made volume, illustrated in full-color throughout; about 4.5-by-6 inches, 20 pages (including front and rear cover) alternately bound with staples or glue. This joyful ode to Christmas booty (as in, presents) features a Schnauzer in holly and red bow, bounding through an alphabet of potential gifts, as though through a store. Perhaps created as a mock-up, story board, or even a potential magazine lay-out (it begins with Shophound sitting in his Vogue office on Christmas Eve), most illustrations are drawn hastily (though nonetheless legible and pleasing) in colored pencil, with two tipped-on illustrations cut from an unidentified source (likely a Tiffany's catalogue). A little finger-smudged with graphite, and with faint editorial notes in the margins, buttressing the possibility that this is an early draft of a larger project. Bookseller Inventory # D4555
