Another highlight in honor of Charles Dickens 200th Birthday

The Cricket on the Hearth : a Fairy Tale of Home is the third of five Christmas books published by Dickens. It was originally published by Bradbury and Evans in 1846. Our featured work was printed by the prominent British private press, the Golden Cockerel Press, in a limited edition of 1500 copies in 1933. The Golden Cockerel Press was in operation from 1920 until 1960 and gained fame for its beautiful handmade books of classic literature that were produced in limited editions.
