Books and Vines would like to wish all of you a Merry Christmas. I hope all of you were able to give some private press Christmas joy this holiday season and, of course, I hope you are on the receiving end of such also! Thanks to Limited Editions Club, here are three holiday works of Charles Dickens, as presented in the early days of Books and Vines! So pop open a nice port — perhaps a 1992 Fonseca — grab a seat next to the fireplace, and enjoy these three great editions!
A Christmas Carol (1934, illustrated by Gordon Ross)
The Chimes (1931, illustrated by Arthur Rackham)
The Cricket on the Hearth (1933, illustrated by Hugh Thomson)
Thank you for your support since the relaunch a few months ago. Books and Vines now has nearly 500 subscribers, and is nearing 155,000 page views, this despite content from the site being intentionally ‘hidden’ from search engines (I will get around to explaining why at some point!). As of now, there are about 350 articles, of which 285 are book reviews. I really do appreciate your readership, your ideas for articles and your comments. Please pass on Books and Vines to anyone you think may be interested.
Dlphcoracl, Neil thank you for your many contributions!
