With the Authors' names to each chapter.

The Christmas Numbers, as is well known, were designed as a whole by Charles Dickens, who wrote the first, and in some cases other chapters himself, whilst the remaining ones were allocated to various famous writers. The Stories, however, appeared anonymously when issued in conjunction with the two famous journals, and consequently readers were not aware to whom they were indebted for the delightful and charming series of Christmas Stories.

Recent research has now made it possible to give the names of the writers of each chapter, and it will be seen from the two lists which follow that the cream of the writers of the period were employed in the construction and authorship of each volume.

Dickens did so much to spread and inspire the true spirit of Christmas that he earned for himself the sobriquet of "The Real Father Christmas"; and so infectious was this spirit that all the other writers who contributed to this series caught it completely and thoroughly, with the result that it was difficult to distinguish between them. As will be seen, the list includes the names of Wilkie Collins, George Augustus Sala, Mrs. Gaskell, Adelaide Anne Procter, Harriet Martineau, Mrs. Lynn Linton, W. H. Wills, R. H. Horne, W. B. Jerrold, Charles Knight, W. Hepworth Dixon, William Howitt, Percy FitzGerald, Holme Lee, Hesba Stretton, Charles Alston Collins, Robert Buchanan, Amelia B. Edwards, John Oxenford, Arthur Locker, Edmund Yates, and others.

Everyone who appreciates a good story, from whatever pen it may proceed, will find here a wealth of that bright seasonable humour and sentiment which have made the name of Dickens inseparable from Christmastide.
