Reader's note

Before the remembrance of the good old times, so fast passing, should have entirely passed away, the present artist, R Caldecott, and engraver, James D. Cooper, planned to illustrate Washington Irving’s ‘old christmas’ in this manner. Their primary idea was to carry out the principle of the sketch book, by incorporating the designs with the text. Throughout they have worked together and con amore. With what success the public must decide. Although the book is undated there is an inscription dated 1818.
