I have never looked closely at one of the books, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, I inherited from my folks. Today I did and was delighted to find the dedication , a paper cutting and the delightful illustrations by Arthur Rackham. Enjoy the gallery.

We have a ‘host of golden daffodils’ in our house. Last week, for the lovely Mr S’s birthday, our super neighbour brought in many bunches of Cornish Daffodils which have now all opened, all 58 of them!
On this day in 1812, Charles Dickens was born. We have a beautiful set of his works, illustrated by Phiz, the nom de plume of Hablot Knight Browne. They worked together for 23 years. These are all from Nicolas Nickleby.
