A Christmas Carol: And Two Other Christmas Books (Hardback)Charles Dickens (author)
- Not available
A Christmas Carol was an overnight success when first published in 1843, and was followed by two further Christmas books, The Chimes and The Cricket on the Hearth, also included in this volume. But A Christmas Carol's Ebenezer Scooge is one of Dickens's most unforgettable characters, a miserable skinflint without equal. Even he, however, can be redeemed by the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
Illustrated by John Leech and others, with an Afterword by Anna South.
