In this Collector's Edition, Dickens's most captivating stories are gathered together, richly illustrated with handwritten letters, reproductions from rare books, and a splendid portfolio of prints and drawings from the special collections of The New York Public Library. Among them are Sol Eytinge's beautiful and tender illustrations forA Christmas Carol,which have not been reproduced for well over one hundred years. Dickens himself said of them, "They are remarkable for a delicate perception of beauty, a lively eye for character, a most agreeable absence of exaggeration, and a general modesty and propriety, which I greatly like." Rare family photographs are also reproduced here, including a portrait of Harry Burnett, Dickens's nephew, who is said to be the model for Tiny Tim. Along with the well-known and belovedA Christmas Carol,this edition presents several works which may be less familiar, including "Mrs. Gamp," "Sikes and Nancy," and "The Trial from Pickwick." Altogether, it's as though a glorious host of Dickens's incomparable creations has assembled at the fireside for a reader's delectation.
