    About: 

    From the rear covers of these two volumes: "Dickens's 'Christmas Books' were all written for the Christmas market and published in the same format. Apart from this they have little in common; unless it is the emphasis they lay on family love and the delights of home, and the beneficial effects of memory. 'A Christmas Carol' has become an inseparable part of the English Christmas, which Dickens might almost be said to have invented, but in its time, like 'The Chimes' and 'The Haunted Man', it moved its readers to a consciousness of the terrible plight of the poor in the Hungry Forties. There is more to the 'Christmas Books', in fact, than the great charm and geniality of 'The Cricket on the Hearth' and they are of great interest and importance in Dickens's development as a writer and a social critic. Above all they reflect the uniquely close and affectionate relationship between Dickens and his readers. This edition reproduces the original illustrations by Tenniel, Leech, Maclise, Doyle and other artists. The cover is base on an engraving by Daniel Maclise for the frontispiece of 'The Cricket on the Hearth'. The portrait of Charles Dickens inside the front cover is from an engraving after a painting by W.P. Frith, by permission of the Trustees of the Dickens House."
