In very good condition, this is a lovely Christmas book. Being a first, signed edition of Christmas Carols for Young Children - With The Christmas Story. Beautifully illustrated by Henriette Willebeek le Mair, the celebrated Dutch illustrator. The illustrations had been completed fifty years previously to the book and are published here for the first time. With the original dust wrapper which reads:

"This book contains a collection of 12 beautiful illustrations of the Nativity, each coupled to a traditional Christmas Carol. They are preceded by a version of the Christmas Story retold from the gospels of Matthew and Luke. Although it will be enjoyed by adults and children of all ages, the book is intended primarily for younger readers. For this reason, the carols have been edited to omit verses containing obscure words and complex or outdated phrases. However, an unedited version of all 12 carols is included at the back of the book."

Inside the pages are excellent being clean, bright and tightly bound with no writing or markings of previous ownership. Signed by the two editors Dawn and Peter Cope.

In the original unclipped dust wrapper which is also in top order. Has some very slight edge wear along the bottom edge.

Your vintage copy of Christmas Carols for Young Children will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon* and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message if desired.

H 22.5 cm x W 26.5 cm, 32 pages, 0.43 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. With the exception of a small number of countries.

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped but sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
