A charming volume of old English Christmas traditions written by famed American author Washington Irving and illustrated by renowned British illustrator Randolph Caldecott. This book has been restored and reprinted from the 1886 edition. It is a high quality reproduction that retains the typesetting and illustrations of the original, which adds to the charming antique feel of the book. The image on the paperback cover has been reproduced from the original gilt hardcover graphic. This volume also features a small blank plaque on the title page that would be perfect for the owner’s name or a gift inscription.
