Recently discovered in an obscure old French magazine, they somehow eluded the grasp of scholars for the last 135 years. Apparently, even Charles Dickens did not know of their existence. They are by far the largest set of Victorian engravings for the story, and they include the first drawing ever made of Tiny Tim! But this beautiful Christmas gift book is much more than that. It also contains the full text of A Christmas Carol, plus all the other early sets of illustrations for the story (by Leech, Phiz, Abbey, Barnard, etc.) making a total of nearly 200 Victorian engravings! The dust jacket front cover features several of the lost engravings, colorized by artist Mike Nicastre. A scholarly introduction by Dan Malan, who discovered this set of lost engravings while writing a major reference work on Dore, explores the significance of the lost engravings and the relationship between Dickens and Dore, with lists of their illustrated editions...."
