DICKENS, Charles. The Haunted Man and The Ghost's Bargain. A fancy for Christmas time. London: Bradbury and Evans, 11 Bouverie Street, 1848.

8vo, newly rebound in half calf over marbled boards, top edges gilt, original cloth upper cover bound in at rear; engraved frontispiece, engraved additional title-page; engravings after J. Tenniel, C. Stanfield, R.A., F. Stone and J. Leech; pp. [xiv], 188; a very nice copy, with only a hint of marginal browning.
First edition.
The fifth and last of Dicken's Christmas novellas. It was famously performed as a play in 1862, an occasion notable for being the first public performance using the technique known as Pepper's Ghost, where a two-dimensional image is projected in such a way that it provides an illusion.
