A CHRISTMAS CAROL by Charles Dickens


Email this review


This was reported for last season, but was postponed. Now in finished form it seems to me more definitely adult in appeal than the sample illustrations and pages I saw last year would indicate. I should advise showing it as a gift book, not specifically a juvenile giftbook. The illustrations in color by Philip Reed suggest hand-colored prints, and are made almost part of the text. I think Charles Dickens would have liked this format of his time-honored Christmas classic, -- slightly larger than stocking book size, illustrated in quaint style with real humor. There is to be a limited, full leather binding, inlaid- $7.50.
