About this Item

First Edition, with the second state of the advertisement leaf as is normally found. Complete with 14 engraved illustrations including a fine frontispiece and title-page, by John Leech, R. Doyle and others. 12mo, rebound in red morocco, preserving most of the original cloth to the boards including the gilt vignette on the upper cover, the spine with tall gilt stippled raised bands and gilt ruled and decorated compartments, lettered in gilt in two compartments. A fine clean copy. THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH was third in Dickens Christmas Book Series. The title grew out of Dickens idea to begin a weekly periodical named "The Cricket" with an added motto, "A cheerful creature that chirrups on the hearth." Dickens relinquished that idea to instead concentrate on the venture that resulted in the founding of the "The Daily News." The original periodical idea manifested itself in his "Household Words." 'THE CRICKET' was extremely popular when issued. Within one year there had been twenty two editions printed. Bookseller Inventory # 27730
