Book Description: 1843. [the first issue, FINE] In Prose. Being a Ghost Story of Christmas. With Illustrations by John Leech. London: Chapman & Hall, 1843. 2 pp undated ads. Original rose-brown cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of Dickens's classic ghost story of Ebenezer Scrooge. Dickens wrote this in less than a month, motivated by financial need; he published it himself, with everyone else associated with the book working on a cost-plus basis. Though he wanted to produce a handsome gift volume (with colored plates, colored title page and all edges gilt), the expense of hand-colored plates cut considerably into his profits; as a result, this was his first and last book to include colored plates. The success of A CHRISTMAS CAROL (the first edition sold out on its publication day, 19 December 1843) put Dickens on a much firmer financial standing.~This is a copy of the first issue, with "Stave I" on p. [1] and with the text entirely uncorrected. It has the following additional issue points:~* title page in blue and red, dated 1843~* chalky green endpapers~ * 14-15mm between the gilt wreath and the left margin blind-stamping on the front cover~* a perfect "D" in "Dickens" in the front cover wreath~Bibliographers have disagreed over the years as to what if any significance these issue points may have, but according to the most recent exhaustive study (Todd's, analyzing the front cover), this copy is of the earliest state of the first issue. ~Except for a lengthy-but-discreet 1929 inscription on the front free endpaper, this copy is in FINE CONDITION: there is just one tiny droplet-mark on the front cover, and as usual the volume is slightly askew. Atypically, there is no wear at the spine ends, the endpapers are not cracked, and there are no repairs or "sophistication." The colored plates are clean and bright, and the textual leaves are entirely free of foxing.~Though the first edition of A CHRISTMAS CAROL is not a rare book, copies of the first issue in fine condition have become quite scarce -- as most copies coming onto the market are worn, or are faded, or have cracked endpapers, or have foxed leaves and darkened plates -- or all of the above; or, worse, have been re-cased, re-backed, or even re-bound. Not this copy. Smith II pp 16-29 (citing prior studies by Gimbel, by Calhoun & Heaney, and by Todd); Eckel pp 110-115. Housed in a felt-lined morocco-backed clamshell case.

Book Description: Chapman & Hall, 1844. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 6th edition, 1844. Published by Chapman & Hall. Illustrated by John Leech. Includes total of 8 plates, 4 of which are hand-colored. Gilt page edges. Measures 6.25" by 4.25" by 0.75". Title page in blue and red. Inscription on flyleaf from previous owner. Minor pencil markings on title page. Minor foxing throughout. Dickens wrote this title in less than a month, motivated by financial need; he published it himself, with everyone else associated with the book working on a cost-plus basis. Though he wanted to produce a handsome gift volume (with colored plates, colored title page and all edges gilt), the expense of hand-colored plates cut considerably into his profits; as a result, this was his first and last book to include colored plates. The success of A CHRISTMAS CAROL (the first edition sold out on its publication day, 19 December 1843) put Dickens on a much firmer financial standing. Family owned since 1989.
