Item Description: Carey & Hart, 1844. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Original dark bue embossed cloth with gilt wreath motif and lettering on spine. The exceedingly scarce first American edition, published only one year after the English first and a near facsimile, with four hand-colored plates and the four half-page black and white illustrations by John Leech now appearing as full-page ilustrations. With "Stave I" and title page in red and blue. A superb copy with original cloth quite clean and unrubbed with only a few faint minor water marks; the gilt on spine only slightly rubbed, corners slightly rubbed, hinges in tact. Thumbing and some browntoning internally, but minor. A near fine copy of what is now considered to be a very rare and desirable Dickens edition. Bookseller Inventory # 2102

Item Description: Chapman & Hall, 1844. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. 6th edition, 1844. Published by Chapman & Hall. Illustrated by John Leech. Includes total of 8 plates, 4 of which are hand-colored. Gilt page edges. Measures 6.25" by 4.25" by 0.75". Title page in blue and red. Inscription on flyleaf from previous owner. Minor pencil markings on title page. Minor foxing throughout. Dickens wrote this title in less than a month, motivated by financial need; he published it himself, with everyone else associated with the book working on a cost-plus basis. Though he wanted to produce a handsome gift volume (with colored plates, colored title page and all edges gilt), the expense of hand-colored plates cut considerably into his profits; as a result, this was his first and last book to include colored plates. The success of A CHRISTMAS CAROL (the first edition sold out on its publication day, 19 December 1843) put Dickens on a much firmer financial standing. Family owned since 1989. Selling online since 1995. Exceptional shopping experience, 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed!. Bookseller Inventory # mon0000492486
