Dickens, Charles, illustrated by C.E. Brock:
A Christmas Carol, The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life, and The Haunted Man and The Ghost's Bargain. A complete set of the five Christmas Books.

London: Dent, 1905, 1905, 1905, 1907, 1907. First printings in this form. Beautiful vellum gilt set, each with a rubricated title page and eight colour plates by Brock, with text illustrations in line. c.150pp per volume, with good sized print. Each volume bears a 1949 copperplate gift inscription to the front free endpaper, and a bookplate to the pastedown. The endpapers have some browning, more conspicuously in the final volume, where it extends to the half title at the front and the final text page at the back. There is some foxing to the frontis tissue guards, with faint spots to two of the title pages, and some volumes have one or two foxing spots to the untrimmed edges. Contents otherwise very clean. Red silk bookmarks (a couple frayed at the tail) and top edges gilt. The full vellum bindings, intricately decorated and titled in gilt, are firm, sharp, fresh and bright, with no signs of handling but for a possible slight knock to the head of The Chimes. Slight bowing to some boards. An exceptional set. Near Fine.
