A Christmas Carol

By Dickens, Charles




The full title of Charles Dickens' most famous work is technically A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost-Story of Christmas. This novella was published on December 19, 1843, and the first edition run of 6000 copies were sold out by Christmas Eve of that year.

The publication of the first edition was fraught with complications, and even though the book was received to positive reviews, profits of the book fell far below Dickens' expectations, and the financial strain caused rifts between Dickens and the original publisher, Chapman & Hall.

First edition identification and notes

The initial publication of A Christmas Carol was challenged by several issues, and those issues are evident in some of the first edition identification notes. The final product of the first edition was printed with a red cloth binding with gilded pages and yellow endpapers. The very first copies were printed with green endpapers, and those copies are exceptionally rare.

The first edition contains four colored illustrations and four black and white illustrations. In the first edition, Stave I is printed with the roman numeral, while later editions spell out the number to be printed as Stave One.

Other collectible or notable editions

For the initial run of A Christmas Carol, Dickens proposed an unheard-of offer--that he would pay for the cost of publishing the first edition, but that he would keep all of the profits. Even though the first run of 6000 copies sold out within two weeks, profits were disappointing.

The most famous, or infamous, edition of A Christmas Carol was published in 1844 by Parley's Illuminated Library. The unauthorized version was a condensed version of the novella, and it was sold for twopence. Dickens was infuriated and successfully sued for copyright infringement.

A Christmas carol

DICKENS, Charles

London: Chapman & Hall, 1843. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE. Four inserted hand-colored steel-engraved plates by and after Leech and four black and white text wood-engravings by W.J. Linton after Leech. Full green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe with intricate gilt stamping on front and back including the letter "E" and 1908 in the top corners and "Xmas 1908" in the bottom corners, all in gilt, spine in compartments with gilt lettering and ornaments, all edges gilt; title page printed in red and blue, and half title printed in blue. Tipped in is a leaf of thick paper with an elaborate multi-colored and gold pen and ink illustration of a London street scene with the words, "To Edmund From" and dated Christmas, 1908. The street is in Central London and shows numerous shops, including the bookstore of the well-known London bookseller Walter Spencer. It is quite probable that the illustration was done by Alberto Sangorski, the brother of Francis (who founded the bindery) and a well-known illustrator. The fly-leaf is signed by Francis Sangorski, George Sutcliffe, and Spencer (fl. 1860-1880), who was friends with Dickens. The original brown publisher's cloth binding is bound in on 3 separate leaves (front, back and spine). A unique, exquisite copy. First edition, first issue, with all first issue points (half-title printed in blue, title printed in blue and red with the 1843 date thereon, "Steve I" on page 1 with the uncorrected text). One of Dickens' most acclaimed works, capturing of the zeitgeist of the Victorian-era revival of the celebration of the holiday. It describes the evolution of businessman Ebenezer Scrooge from arrogant, stubborn miser to warm-hearted, kind holiday celebrant, following his meeting with the now famed characters of the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Published on 19 December, the first edition sold out by Christmas Eve, 1843. Given the illustration and binding, it is likely that the book was specially bound for someone who was both a client of the bindery as well as the bookseller Walter Spencer. Sangorski and Sutcliffe made "Christmas bindings" as gifts for good customers over the years, but this example is clearly not one of their usual holiday offerings, as none of those were ever signed. It is possible (though not at all proven) that the Edmund to whom the book and the binding was given was Edmund Dulac, who was indeed a customer of both the bindery and the bookseller at the time (1908) and who was living in Central London. Dickens (1812-1870), known for his many other notable works, including Oliver Twist and David Copperfield, penned A christmas carol during England's revived exploration of yuletide traditions and the newly emerging ones, taking inspiration from tales written by Washington Irving and Douglas Jerrold. Deeply in debt, Dickens began this novel in the 1840s in order to supplement his family's deficient income. This work resulted in acknowledging Dickens as a lasting influence on the modern Western observance of Christmas, including the festive generosity of spirit experienced during the holiday season.

Published by William Heinemann, 1915. 1st USA edition.. Hardback. Very Good/Good. Illustrated by Rackham, Arthur. Very good condition in a good dustwrapper. The first Dickens story Rackham attempted. Despite its ghostliness and opportunities for the supernatural, Rackham did not exploit these to the full. He seems to have voluntarily passed up the opportunity to terrify his readers, choosing instead to calm them with charming images of families enjoying the spirit of Christmas. Perhaps his choice resulted from the mood of national anxiety and tragedy of wartime. 147pp. 8 x 6". 12 colour plates plus b/w illustrations and decorations. First American edition. Lavender cloth, gilt titles and vignette to front cover. Grey/white pictorial endpapers. Some light bumping and wear to spine and corners. Fading to spine. Foxing to endpapers, outer page edges and a few page margins. All colour plates are present, with captioned tissue-guards. Wrapper is in two pieces, all the way down spine edge next to front cover; repaired previously to verso with tape. A few other closed tears and small nicks, but minimal loss. [S]
