Neat ink name and date (1917) on front blank leaf. Binding extremities very slightly rubbed otherwise a near fine copy of this scarce edition. This is the first time in over fifty years that we have seen this edition."He [Rackham] is not usually remembered as an illustrator of Dickens, but A Christmas Carol (1915) was decidedly successful, for he contrived to adapt the tradition of 'Phiz' and Cruikshank to his own characteristic style in the pictures of Victorian London and at the same time found scope for his fantasy in the ghost scenes. We also find him here developing his special talent for silhouette, rare among illustrators?" (Derek Hudson. Arthur Rackham, p. 106).This edition not in Latimore and Haskell or Riall.
