Description: "Scrooge was the meanest man in the world. He hated everybody and everything – especially Christmas. Then one cold Christmas Eve, three Spirits came to visit him, and his life changed…"
Excellent, colour illustrations throughout – several of which are full-page. Front pastedown and endpaper feature colour depictions of various key characters in the story, plus a portrait of Charles Dickens.
Matt pictorial boards are in superb condition. Spine lightly bumped (all too common on Ladybirds), but corners are perfectly straight. Internally, the book is as new: pages are crisp, clean, bright, and free from all manner of defect. Super-tight binding.
A wonderful example of a genuine first edition.
