A Christmas Carol in Prose (Uncredited Facsimile Edition in a Gorgeous Bayntun Binding)

By Charles Dickens

London: Chapman and Hall, 1842. Full leather. Very Good +. John Leech. An uncredited facsimile edition (c. 1950), bound --and signed by Bayntun Binder, Bath, England-- in a beautifully inlaid, full-red morocco, with the image from the original frontispiece ("Mr. Fezzwig's Ball") gracing the front panel. Both covers and the gilt edges in immaculate condition, the rear pastedown and rear endpaper show a bit of abrading along the edges and the spine has taken on even darkening and shows just the slightest hint of wear along the crown. A red cloth slipcase, which has suffered a good deal of staining and wear, has protected the book very capably. John Leech's magnificent original illustrations, a number of them in rich color, have been lavishly reproduced.
