55 x 37mm, Original publisher’s suede, gilt spine titles and marble endpapers all in fair condition with insect damage to part of one front and one rear board, text in good condition printed on India paper with front page of three of the tiny volumes loose from the spine though all spines are surprisingly sound. The five volumes comprise The Chimes, The Cricket On The Hearth, The Battle Of Life, The Haunted Man (all 1904) and A Christmas Carol (1906) and although fragile at over a hundred years old, they are an amazing and quant unretouched example of early miniatures, all still readable.
