Description:

LIMITED DE LUXE EDITION SIGNED BY ARTHUR RACKHAM, one of only 525 hand-numbered copies. This limited edition is printed on significantly larger paper then the trade issue. With 12 tipped-in haunting colour plates, 18 black and white illustrations and line drawings by Arthur Rackham, endpapers designed and illustrated by the artist. 4to, publisher’s de luxe full vellum, beautifully decorated and lettered in gilt on on both the spine and the upper cover in Christmas motif, t.e.g. xv, 147 pp. A very bright, fine and desirable copy of this limited edition, the text very fine indeed without spot or flaw, the plates all pristine with tissue-guards intact, the vellum fresh and bright, without ties as often, some spotting to the end-leaves as often. The elusive limited signed edition of an extraordinary piece of literature, surely one of both Charles Dickens' and Arthur Rackham’s best books. ONE OF THE GREATEST COMBINATIONS OF AUTHOR AND ILLUSTRATOR YET PUBLISHED. The artist successfully incorporated the ‘Phiz’ and Cruikshank styles into his own to create striking renditions of Victorian London with ample room to uniquely evoke ghostly fantasy images as well. His almost characterized depictions of Scrooge, features chiseled and grotesque, are as bone-chilling as his fantastic entourages of moaning ghouls. The muted, shadowed atmospheric tones so characteristically Rackham, support Dickens’ eerie tale wonderfully. Some examples of Rackham’s emerging special talent for silhouette are also included.
