The Pears Centenary Edition of Dickens’ Christmas Books
Complete 5 Volume Set. All five volumes are tight, bright and firm in their bindings, with high contrast printing on bright glossy white paper, and charming b&w illustrations by Charles Green R.I. (1840–1898), and L. Rossi. All have illustrated front paste-downs (for Pears soap Established 1789, By Appointment to Their Majesties). All volumes have a second, unmarked, illustrated title page on glossy paper and three pages of Pears adverts at the rear. A very good set of a very attractive edition.
