About this Item

First Edition, with the second state of the vignette titlepage as usual. Engraved frontispiece and title page, 11 other illustrations by John Leech, Richard Doyle, and others. 12mo, original red cloth, enclosed in a cloth slipcase with paper label. 175 pp. A solid very good copy, the corners rubbed, and light soiling, the cloth a bit worn along the joints. This was Dickens second installment in the "Christmas Books" series and his labors in creating THE CHIMES were "very arduous" in order to make it a worthy successor to A CHRISTMAS CAROL. He wrote to one of his friends that he believed he had "written a tremendous book and knocked the Carol out of the field. It will make a great uproar I have no doubt." Of course, it did not exceed the CAROL in any way except in initial sales, but it is a charming tale nonetheless. Bookseller Inventory # 27644
