A CHRISTMAS CAROL is what Charles Dickens described as his "little Christmas Book" and was first published with many beautiful illustrations. These original 1843 drawings and illustrations are reproduced in this book. The story was instantly successful, selling over six thousand copies in one week. The tale has become one of the most popular and enduring Christmas stories of all time. A Christmas Carol was written during a time of decline in the old Christmas traditions, but contemporaries noted that the story's popularity played a critical role in redefining the importance of Christmas and the major sentiments associated with the holiday. This is a glossy high-quality large 6 x 9 size edition, beautifully illustrated, which includes the countless wonderful pictures from the original edition adding greatly to important and dramatic scenes in the story. That makes this an edition every lover of Dickens and this immortal Christmas fable should have in his personal library.
