The Life of Our Lord" written by Charles Dickens and illustrated by Rachel Taft-Dixon, published by Grosset & Dunlap, Inc., copyright 1936.
"Charles Dickens wrote " The Life of Our Lord" for his own children. He set it down in his own hand, for their eyes-and their eyes alone. For eighty-five years the resulting manuscript was sacredly guarded as a precious family secret. Just before the 1933 Christmas holidays Sir Henry (Youngest son of Dickens) died, Sir Henry's widow and children, through a majority decision, assumed the right to permit its publication, and "The Life of Our Lord", by Charles Dickens, is thus given to the world."
