Der Weihnachtsabend [A Christmas Carol]
DICKENS, Charles; RACKHAM, Arthur (illus.)
Podeschi lists the 1918 edition only, C84. This is the first German edition with Rackham illustrating. Who better than Rackham to illustrate Dickens' ghostly Christmas tale? Whether it be London's gas-lit streets, Scrooge's dark and dreary home, the fearsome spirit of Marley, or a Victorian hovel, Rackham's eerie style is perfect for the nocturnal adventures of the miserly Scrooge.
