Item Description: 1843. First Edition. DICKENS, Charles.The Christmas Books.London: Chapman and Hall, 1843-48.Together, five volumes.First editions of all five of Charles Dickens' Christmas BooksÑchief among them a first issue of his immortal Christmas Carol, the veritable "Bible of Christmas"Ñillustrated with 63 engravings, four in color, by Leech, Maclise, Stanfield, Doyle and Landseer, all books in the original gilt-decorated cloth. A lovely set.A Christmas Carol "may readily be called the Bible of ChristmasÉ It was issued about ten days before Christmas, 1843, and 6000 copies were sold on the first dayÉ the number of reprintings have been so many that all attempts at the figures have been futile. Altogether 24 editions were issued in the original format" (Eckel, 110). "It was a work written at the height of Dickens' great powers, which would add to his considerable fame, bring a new work to the English language, increase the festivities at Christmastime, and contain his most eloquent protest at the condition of the poor" (John Mortimer). "Suddenly conceived and written within a few weeks, [A Christmas Carol] was the first of Dickens' Christmas books (a new literary genre thus created incidentally)É it was an extraordinary achievementÑthe one great Christmas myth of modern literature." The publication history of A Christmas Carol is bibliographically complex. "Dickens decided to publish the book himselfÉ He wanted the Carol to be a beautiful gift book and took pride in its development. He stipulated the following requirements: a fancy binding, blind-stamped, with gilding on the spine and front cover; all edges gilded; four full-page hand-colored etchings; half title and title pages printed in colors of bright red and green; and hand-colored green endpapers to match the green title pageÉ However, in examining printed copies prior to publication, Dickens was disappointed with the appearance of the green titles, which turned drab, and the hand-colored green endpapers, which dusted off and smudged, and had the title page changed to red and blue, the half title to blue, the date on the title page changed from 1844 to 1843, and the endpapers changed to yellow, which did not require hand work. Dickens' changes were completed by December 17É Since Dickens' instructions to discontinue the unsatisfactory titles and endpapers were received at the press before publication, at a time when there were on hand different quantities of endpapers, title pages, and sheets of printed text already produced, many copies are found with a mixture of features" (Gimbel A79).Eckel, 110-125. Smith II: 4-6, 8-9.A Christmas Carol with interior generally clean, mild crease to pages 63-64; expert restoration to original cloth, slightest rubbing to still-bright gilt, extremely good. The remaining volumes are all near-fine with slightly darkened spines, gilt bright. Overall, a lovely, complete set, most desirable in the original cloth and with a first-issue of A Christmas Carol.

Item Description: Chapman & Hall, London, 1843. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. First Edition Set, finely bound by Zaehnsdorf of London in full red morocco leather. All volumes bound in the high house style (likely early twentieth century), five band spines, all edges gilt, red silk endpapers, fine gilt inner dentels. This is a spectacular set, in which Zaehnsdorf has bound all of the books with the original cloth covers on laid paper at the rear of each volume. Leather is in wonderful condition, boards are fresh and flexible, not a single crack. All gilt title printing done with lug type (same machine, I think, as the Chelsea Bindery uses today), all gilt lettering nice and sharp (see closeups). These books have been well maintained for a very long time and have only minor wear. The spines are just a touch darker than the boards, and the gilt paper edges have minor use wear (still attractive). All five volumes have the Zaehnsdorf gilt signature at the bottom of the inside front board and a blindstamp on the back silk endpaper, which was the house mark for an exhibition quality binding. In other words, their best work. The other four titles are: The Chimes, The Haunted Man etc., The Battle of Life, The Cricket on the Hearth. In The Christmas Carol the green end papers are bound-in; 1st issue with "Stave I" printed on page [1]. Bookseller Inventory # 1407523

The Haunted Man and Cricket in the Hearth show cracking to the cloth on the spine. Three have the names of former owners in ink, one has the sticker from a bookseller. A few frontispieces show age-related toning. Nevertheless, these are original editions of Dickens' Christmas books, in the editions and states as described. Altogether a very good set.

The Christmas Books is the name given to Charles Dickens' mid-nineteenth century series formatted after and including his 1843 masterpiece, A Christmas Carol. Each novel in the series is marked by a strong moral and social message, the transformation of a hardened character to a more caring individual, and, of course, the holiday season. Unusual for Dickens, all of The Christmas Books were published first as novels without prior serial publication. Additionally, they are all illustrated in black and white, with the exception of A Christmas Carol, which contains plates with color illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # CD063
