Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This profusely illustrated edition of Dickens's yuletide ghost story features 45 engravings by Gustave Dore, who was the first artist to illustrate Tiny Tim and the Cratchit family. This additionally sports 130 other Victorian illustrations.

Review

The point of this publication, supervised by Dan Malan, of The Classics Collector magazine, is the presence of "45 lost engravings by Gustave Doré" along with 130 other Victorian illustrations. Doré did a fine job--his ghosts are the scariest, his poor the shabbiest, and his Scrooge the meanest among the examples on display--but it was a job for an ephemeral publication, not to be compared with the artist's independent projects. The full Dickens text is of course present; this reprint is an interesting oddity. -- The Atlantic Monthly, Phoebe-Lou Adams

I'm a lover of Charles Dickens and especially A Christmas Carol. I especially enjoy this book because of the beautiful and original engravings by Gustave Dore. It makes this version of A Christmas Carol so much more interesting and gives the reader a glimpse into the kind of books people read in the 1800s. Illustrations were common and enhanced the reader's enjoyment of a story. It was their version of television. Thanks for a wonderful book. A delicious bit of history and nostalgia.

well, what do you want me to say? this book is a wonder, not only is it A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens one of the most loved books ever written but it also has artwork by Gustave Dore' who in my opinion is one of the greatest artist of the 19th century. the one fly in this very well realized book is that the artwork is not crisp and it is too dark to see the great detail in the printing. so i would conclude that it was not done with great passion by the publishers who may have thought of it as a Christmas book only. it also has other victorian artwork but a lot of it is uncredited. the condition of the book that i got was used and so i did not make a Christmas present of it as i had intended to. i will order another one in this calendar year for my lady friend when i show her mine and if she likes it.

When I received this book, I was expecting it to be a larger size with better pictures inside. Don't get me wrong; the pictures of the Dore engravings are very good, but, bc the book is quite small, the engravings are also smaller than I had hoped. For $40, I expected this book to be much more impressive, especially since it is a recent printing, with original price of $19.99. If given the opportunity again, I would not have bought this book. I did not return it bc we live in Africa, and I bought it as a gift for my husband. It is not worth more than $20.

I got this while on a committee for costuming a production of "A Christmas Carol". While not showing enough variety and detail to be a huge amount of help, it was useful as one piece of our research in the "feel" we wanted to create for our production. Since we were on a very tight budget and were trying to use borrowed, found, and second-hand resources, this was an important part of our research.
