Note
  • "While faithful to the English illustrations, these have been re-engraved by an American artist. Contains the 'Fireside Plate,' suppressed in the London edition. American editions of early Dickens books are very scarce and for so poor a production this may be called a fine copy." See Magee, D., Victoria R.I., entry 339.
  • Bound in original plum cloth. Upper and lower covers stamped in blind. Spine lettered in gilt.
