Title: A Christmas Carol in Prose. Publisher: Chapman & Hall - London. Description: A very good copy of the scarce 1845 stated 11th "edition" (a term that in 1845 was used the way we would use "print run" today) This copy includes the Four black and white wood-engraved illustrations by W. Linton, but is lacking the "John Leech" frontis and Marley's Ghost hand-colored illustration, with Scrooge's third Visitor & The Last of the Spirits intact. Housed in the original red silk boards blind-stamped with a border of holly and ivy and both the spine and the front cover bear the title and authors name in gold, surrounded by gold wreaths of holly.The half-title is printed in blue, the title page is printed in red and blue with a branch of holly and a decorative frame with the date (1845) in Roman numerals at the very bottom of the page. The page edges are gilded all around. The book also retains the following first edition points: signature marks ie: "B" at the foot of the first page of text and "C" at the foot of p. 17; the original misplaced semicolon on page 53, line 5; the Chapman and Hall caption at the base of the illustration opposite page 150; and the 2 pages of ads in the rear. Recent professional restoration includes a new cloth spine with the original cloth pasted down, new mull and endpapers. Corners bumped and rubbed, light wear to the extremities, some discoloration to the cloth on the rear boards and a bit of loss to the original cloth at the spine tips. The interior is in very nice condition clean and unmarked with toning and a bit of scattered foxing throughout. Overall a very good and quite scarce copy of the 1845 Eleventh Edition/Printing.
