A Christmas Carol (Illustrated by Arthur Rackham with an Introduction by Hall Caine)
First published in 1843, “A Christmas Carol” is arguably Dickens’s most popular and accessible work. An instant success ever since its original publication, it is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a cold, bitter, old miser who despises Christmas and everything about it. When the ghost of Scrooge’s former business partner, Jacob Marley, visits him on Christmas Eve exactly seven years after his death, Scrooge is challenged to rethink his ways before it is too late. Over the course of the evening he is visited by three more spirits, the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Yet to Come. These visits help Scrooge to see the error in his ways transforming him by the end of the story into a kinder and gentler soul. Inspired by his experiences as a child, Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” highlights the plight of the lower class in 19th century England through an enduring and ultimately heart-warming tale. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, includes an introduction by Hall Caine, and is illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

    The Fantastic Line Art of Arthur Rackham
    Arthur Rackham is widely regarded as one of the leading illustrators from the golden age of British book illustration, which encompassed the years 1890 until the end of World War I. The acclaim for the artist's wealth of color illustrations has overshadowed the merit of his first-rate ink work, a genre richly deserving of individual attention. This original volume, the first available collection of Rackham's line art, features images from throughout his career, including illustrations for Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and some rare periodical work.
    In addition, this compilation presents two seldom-seen magazine features on the artist: "Arthur Rackham: The Wizard at Home," a 1905 article from The International Studio, and "Arthur Rackham: A Painter of Fantasies," a 1914 article from St. Nicholas Magazine. These articles, not reprinted in over a century, contain pictures of Rackham's studio and residence as well as some stories of his own commentary. Together with scores of strange and wonderful illustrations, they provide fresh insights into the work of the artist known as "the Beloved Enchanter."
