About this Item: 1843. "DICKENS, Charles. The Christmas Books. London: Chapman and Hall, 1843-48. Together, five volumes. Small octavo, original rose and red cloths (Carol is expertly rebacked with original spine laid down), gilt-decorated covers and spines, all edges gilt. Housed in custom chemises and slipcase. $28,000.First editions of all five of Charles Dickens' Christmas Books—chief among them a first issue of his immortal Christmas Carol, the veritable "Bible of Christmas"—illustrated with 63 engravings, four in color, by Leech, Maclise, Stanfield, Doyle and Landseer, all books in the original gilt-decorated cloth. A lovely set.A Christmas Carol "may readily be called the Bible of Christmas It was issued about ten days before Christmas, 1843, and 6000 copies were sold on the first day the number of reprintings have been so many that all attempts at the figures have been futile. Altogether 24 editions were issued in the original format" (Eckel, 110). "It was a work written at the height of Dickens' great powers, which would add to his considerable fame, bring a new work to the English language, increase the festivities at Christmastime, and contain his most eloquent protest at the condition of the poor" (John Mortimer). "Suddenly conceived and written within a few weeks, [A Christmas Carol] was the first of Dickens' Christmas books (a new literary genre thus created incidentally) it was an extraordinary achievement—the one great Christmas myth of modern literature." The publication history of A Christmas Carol is bibliographically complex. "Dickens decided to publish the book himself He wanted the Carol to be a beautiful gift book and took pride in its development. He stipulated the following requirements: a fancy binding, blind-stamped, with gilding on the spine and front cover; all edges gilded; four full-page hand-colored etchings; half title and title pages printed in colors of bright red and green; and hand-colored green endpapers to match the green title page However, in examining printed copies prior to publication, Dickens was disappointed with the appearance of the green titles, which turned drab, and the hand-colored green endpapers, which dusted off and smudged, and had the title page changed to red and blue, the half title to blue, the date on the title page changed from 1844 to 1843, and the endpapers changed to yellow, which did not require hand work. Dickens' changes were completed by December 17 Since Dickens' instructions to discontinue the unsatisfactory titles and endpapers were received at the press before publication, at a time when there were on hand different quantities of endpapers, title pages, and sheets of printed text already produced, many copies are found with a mixture of features" (Gimbel A79). A Christmas Carol is from the first issue, with uncorrected text ("Stave I" as the first chapter heading), the red-and-blue title page dated 1843, the half title printed in blue, and light green endpapers. (First-issue copies appear with either yellow or green endpapers, no priority established.) Binding matches Todd's first impression, first issue, with the smallest interval between blindstamped border and gilt wreath equal to 14-15 mm, and with the "D" in "Dickens" unbroken (Smith II:4). First edition of The Chimes, with the first state of the engraved title page (publisher's imprint is engraved within the title vignette); first edition of The Cricket on the Hearth, with second state of advertising leaf at rear (headed "New Edition of Oliver Twist"); first edition of The Battle of Life, with vignette title page in the fourth state (subtitled "A Love Story" on a scroll carried by an angel and without publisher's imprint); first edition of The Haunted Man and The Ghost's Bargain. All advertisements present, as issued.Dickens followed A Christmas Carol's tremendous success with four more Christmas books. In each book, he deftly develops the themes of the first, ideals that have consequently become inseparable from th. Seller Inventory # 89161

About this Item: London: Chapman & Hall; Bradbury & Evans, 1843–8, 1843. 5 volumes, octavo. Original pinkish-brown and red cloth, titles and pictorial design to spines and front boards gilt, borders to boards blocked in blind, green endpapers to Christmas Carol, yellow endpapers to other volumes, all edges gilt. Housed in custom green cloth chemises and a green quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Gift inscription to front endpapers of Battle of Life and Chimes, trace of bookplate removal to front pastedown of Haunted Man. Christmas Carol: a very nice, unrestored, sharp copy, slight marks to rear cover, else bright, contents fresh. Other volumes: A little wear to tips and spine ends, couple of hinges cracked but holding, Battle of Life a little marked and soiled, overall an excellent set in original cloth. Christmas Carol with hand-coloured frontispiece, 3 full-page hand-coloured plates, illustrations within the text; other titles with frontispiece and engraved title, illustrations in the text by Leech, Maclise, Stanfield, Doyle and Landseer. First editions, first printings, of Dickens's sequence of Christmas books. A Christmas Carol is the first issue, with "Stave I" on the first page of text, red and blue title page, green endpapers, and all the first edition textual points. The hand-coloured green endpapers, Dickens's original choice for his lavish gift book, proved a disappointment, as the colour tended to dust off and smudge, so the endpapers were changed to yellow, not requiring hand work. Probably in the middle of binding, as demand grew faster than the current endpaper stock, it was decided to use up the green paper, and thereafter it was used indiscriminately with yellow, but discarded again when the initial supply of green became exhausted. Primary copies therefore occur with either green or yellow endpapers, with some collectors preferring green as the author's original prepublication choice. The Chimes has the first state vignette title page; The Cricket on the Hearth has the first state of the advertisement leaf; and The Battle of Life has the second variant vignette title, all as described by Smith. A Christmas Carol was an instant success, reportedly selling all 6,000 copies of the first edition on the first day of publication, and Dickens went on to produce a small festive book for each successive Yuletide. The final book, The Haunted Man, was published in 1848, after Dickens postponed the planned book for Christmas 1847 to focus on completing his novel Dombey and Son. Smith II.4; 5; 6; 8; 9.

About this Item: London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLIII (1843); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1846; London: Bradbury & Evans, MDCCCXLVI (1846); London: Chapman & Hall, MDCCCXLV (1845); London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. 5 vols., 8vo, see below for the discussion of states and pagination. All volumes in full dark green morocco extra, covers with gilt holly sprigs at corners, backstrips faded to rich brown, lettered and stamped in gilt, gilt edges: each book in very good condition. A Christmas Carol with its original light-brown and vertically ribbed cloth covers and green end-papers bound in at the end. The rest of the Christmas Books are uniformly bound in matching morocco, vertically ribbed red cloth covers bound in at the end, all edges gilt. Each volume has the bookplate of Henry Sloane Coffin, by descent to a private collector in San Francisco. A lovely set perfect for reading or handling without fear of damage. First editions of all five of Dickens's Christmas books. With engravings by D. Maclise, R. Doyle, C. Stanfield, J. Leech, J. Tenniel, and F. Stone, Thompson, G. Dalziel, E. Dalziel, T. Williams, Swain, and Groves. A Christmas Carol is the high point and the crucial component in any set of Dickens's Christmas Books. Dickens kept its production on a short leash and anecdotes abound about his pleasure or displeasure with the differently colored endpapers, the color of the cloth for the binding, the typography and so forth. Oddly enough, despite Dickens' personal attention to this edition, it is not a particularly well-made title. Coupled with the legions of fans who often read their copies "to death," it comes as no surprise that original and well-preserved copies of this book, in its correct state, seldom appear on the market. The Chimes, written in Genoa, Italy, was commercially more successful than A Christmas Carol and Dickens worked hard to make this second Christmas book a worthy successor. The Cricket. grew from the idea to begin a weekly periodical which would have been called "The Cricket," though was abandoned quickly for a more important venture and the founding of The Daily News. The Cricket was wildly successful, doubling in circulation of both its predecessors. Dickens wrote The Battle of Life during a period of recuperation needed after illness attributed to overworking; despite being seriously indisposed he managed to complete the work, while working on Dombey and Son, though it was not as successful as his other Christmas books thus far. The Haunted Man. was the last of the Christmas books, and despite requiring a final rally from the author to avoid disappointing the public, the book is considered the least interesting and lowest grossing of the Christmas books; the issue of 20,000 had not completely sold when the author died. All books are in their most desirable states, as follows:A Christmas Carol.: [i-viii], [1]-166, [2, ads] pp. First edition, first issue. Green endpapers; "Stave I" on pp. 1; uncorrected text throughout; red-and-blue printed title page, with four color etchings and four woodcuts, full-page color etchings. The Chimes.: [i-viii], [1]-175, [1, imprint; 1, advert.] pp. First edition, first issue. The name of the publishers is a part of the the vignette title page as per the first issue. 11 woodcuts in text and steel engraved frontis and titlepage.The Cricket on the Hearth.: [i-viii], [1]-174, [lacks 2pp. ads] pp. First edition, first issue. With steel engraved frontis and titlepage, and 12 woodcuts in text. The Battle of Life.: [i-viii], [1-3], 4-175, [3, imprint and ads]. First edition, second of four states of the engraved title. Terminal ads announce the publication in parts of Dombey and Son, and the bound volume of Oliver Twist. In addition to the engraved frontis and titlepage there are 11 woodcuts in the text. The Haunted Man and the Ghosts Bargain.: [i-viii], [1]-188 pp., with engraved frontis and title page, and 15 woodcuts in the text. Smith II 4, 5, 6, 8, 9. Eckel 116-134. Seller Inventory # 109280
