Description: A book with a marbleized paper cover in shades of brown and with a black taped spine. The title is "The Christmas Number of London Society". It is a collection of stories, poems and illustrations.

London Society was an illustrated monthly magazine circulating from 1862 to 1898, which advertised itself as "An Illustrated Magazine of Light and Amusing Literature for the Hours of Relaxation". It was published independently and contained a mix of miscellaneous articles, short fiction - much of it anonymous - and serialised novels. The magazine issued lavish Christmas numbers with stories.
