Here is a nice little copy of A Christmas Carol, illustrated by Wizard of Oz illustrator John R. Neill, with the hard to find dust jacket! Copyright 1915 by Reilly & Britton, this is a circa 1922 Reilly & Lee edition, with ads listing to Kabumpo in Oz in the back. One of the rare Children’s Red Book series, it includes Jessica’s First Prayer as well as A Christmas Carol. Contains lavish color endpapers and color illustrations on many of the 58 pages.

The book is in very good condition. Paper covered boards are great, clean and bright, but there is a little paper loss at base of spine. Inside, hinges look to have been reglued, and ownership page is filled in in pencil. Pages really clean. Jacket good with a few larger chips as shown. Photos show glare from mylar protective cover.
