Christmas Dreams.
London & New York: W. Hagelberg, [c. 1890]. London & New York: W. Hagelberg,, [c. 1890]. An excellent copy of a rare publication Duodecimo, 20 pp. Original colour pictorial stiff card wrappers, titles in greyish-brown to front cover, bound in gilt cord, gilt edges. With the dust jacket. Housed in custom red morocco-backed cloth solander box by Asprey, title in gilt direct to spine, raised bands tooled in gilt. Colour illustrations throughout, including a depiction of Father Christmas in his white fur-lined red coat. Gift inscription pencilled to front pastedown. Slight toning and offsetting to endpapers, else clean and unmarked. A fine copy in the fine jacket, two tiny traces to front panel, else a remarkable survival. First and only edition, very scarce: we were unable to trace any copies, either on Library Hub, Library Hub, or on the market. This lovely publication comprises four poems by Edith Nesbit, three by Nesbit's close friend, and lover of her husband, Alice Hoatson, and four others including one by Oscar Fredrik (1829-1907), King of Sweden and Norway. Wolff Hagelberg was a Berlin-based publisher of the 1860s to 1890s, specialised in fine greeting cards and juvenile booklets, including children's stories by Alice Hoatson such as Merry Words for Merry Children and Tricks of Kittens, Dogs, and Monkeys.[Attributes: In Dust Jacket]
