Description

Here is a beautiful little copy of A Christmas Carol, illustrated by Wizard of Oz illustrator John R. Neill. Copyright 1908 by Reilly & Britton, this is a 1920s Reilly & Lee printing. One of the rare Children’s Red Book series, it includes Jessica’s First Prayer as well. Contains lavish color endpapers, a color title page and frontispiece, and color illustrations on many of the 60 pages. Back also includes an advertisement for “The Famous Oz Books” by L. Frank Baum, ending in Kabumpo in Oz (1922). Small book, about 5×7″.

Book is in very good condition. Light soiling to pastedown; blue cloth cover is clean and sharp. Interior is near fine–pages clean and unmarked, no writing, just a little splitting at rear hinge to the fragile stapled binding. Open the book gently, please, to keep it near pristine. A lovely copy, just in time for the holidays.
