Printing Details

Undated [1887]. Assumed first edition, card covers with sewn binding. 10.5 × 12.5cm, unpaginated, c22pp.

An early piece from the author of The Railway Children. This is a seasonal poem set at Christmas and is illustrated throughout in High Victorian sentimental style. An attractive book. A previous owners inscription shows it was given as a Christmas gift on December 25th, 1889.


A good copy. The strong binding has discolored the card covers and is a little loose. The pages have occasional and spotted foxing but overall, this is a decent copy.
