What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Limited Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Slipcase

'The Chimes' is the second of Charles Dickens' 'Christmas Books'. It was issued a year after 'A Christmas Carol' and is an important moral tale by this popular Victorian author. 

Limited edition, numbered 612 to the limitation page. 1500 copies were printed total of this work. 

With illustrations by Arthur Rackham, in Linotype Estienne by its designer George W Jones at the Sign of the Dolphon in Gough Square London, England.  During the ‘Golden Age’ of British book illustration Rackham was one of its leading artists.  Stylistically, Rackham’s illustrations reflected pen and India ink drawings. He used expressive line paired with a subtle use of watercolour to create his beautiful images.

Signed by Arthur Rackham to the limitation page. 

With the original slipcase. 

A very bright copy of this work.
