Hardcover, publisher’s olive green decorative cloth. Top edge gilt. 71 pages. Untrimmed, deckle edged pages. Illustrated with 4 full page photogravures, with tissue guards, from original drawings by Corwin Knapp Linson. First edition. Small previous owner’s plate inside front cover. Cloth faded to light brown on spine, not affecting gilt lettering. Rear cover moderately faded and upper front cover devoid of green [appears to be a binder’s error, as line between green and uncolored cloth is sharp and distinct]. Front tissue guard badly foxed with light foxing to title-page. Else book is a tight, sound and unmarked. Overall still a quite handsome copy of this Christmas tale. Good.
