Five Volume Set namely : A Christmas Carol, The Chimes, The Haunted Man, The Battle of Life & The Cricket on the Hearth . Undated  Published by "Pears" to mark the centenary of Charles Dickens' birth, Artist Charles Green R.I. was commissioned to produce the illustrations for the books which vary in number in the volumes ( 22 to 30) and many consider his to be the most suited to Dickens' characters. VG ( Books- cloth - a little shelf rubbing to spine edges- colour loss only. No notable soiling and no previous owner names or inscriptions.The paper stock of the book blocks are of quality china clay and consequently the pages have remained bright and white. The end papers were made of lesser quality paper and have become a little discoloured with offset browning. No other notable defects). A very handsome set which would make an ideal gift. Please see our images of the actual books offered for sale.
