This novella, written in 1850, tells a Victorian-Christmas tale of John Brown's ghastly family (suburban snobs), Captain Bonaventure de Camp and his equally awful brood (a dubious crew), and poor Soavo Spohf, organist of St. Stiff the Martyr, gifted in musical ability but not blessed in looks or love.

This edition of the book contains the 47 original illustrations, rejuvenated.

John Leighton, "a long-lived man of exceptional ability with wide-ranging interests" was not only a prolific book illustrator but he also designed the covers of books for more than 60 publishers and "wrote and illustrated a number of works in the 1840s under the pseudonym of Luke Limner, almost certainly taking his pseudonym from St Luke, the patron saint of artists."
