London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. First edition. Small 8vo: [viii], 188; complete. A solid, Near Fine copy with all required points by Smith (II.9). A few small ink spashes on the cloth and a small circular embossed ownership stamp on the front end paper, otherwise in excellent condition. Dickens' fifth and final Christmas book. As in his other Christmas books, Dickens is rather heavy-handed with his moral: that it is better to forgive than forget. Near Fine (Item #1868)
