The Christmas Books by Charles Dickens became an annual event following the enormous popular impact of the first story, A Christmas Carol - and so influential that they are credited with inventing the idea of Christmas itself. This beautiful edition is part of a new series offering the best-loved classics in fine volumes, with colourful cloth bindings, and produced to the highest standards, for under GBP20. Instead of a dust jacket, the decorated cloth covers have a printed illustration wrapping around the book.Among the other elements that differ from standard hardbacks are coloured page tops, decorated endpapers, meticulous line-by-line typesetting, and thicker acid free paper, to give these editions extra appeal and embody the crafted virtues of a good book. The result is quality of design and production that adds to the pleasure of reading. For anyone interested in a fine edition of a favourite work, an attractive volume for the bookshelf or an authentic and distinctive present.
