Jullien's Chimes Quadrilles, music sheet
Cover design for a music sheet containing the French conductor Louis Antoine Jullien's Chimes Quadrilles, building on the success of Charles Dickens' second Christmas book, The Chimes, first published in 1844. A typical Dickensian scene is depicted, with people dancing and making merry during the festive season. There is a set of six large bells at the top, with goblins perched on them and looking down at the people.
