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
