What would Christmas be without A Christmas Carol? Charles Dickens's famous ghost story is as much a part of the season as plum pudding and mistletoe, and Michael Patrick Hearn, the celebrated annotator of The Wizard of Oz and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, has prepared this sumptuous, thoroughly annotated edition, which has already become the definitive edition of our century. Initially published by Norton in 2004, this is the first edition to combine the original story with Dickens's Public Reading text, published to coincide with his 1867-68 American tour, which has not been reprinted in nearly a century. Included are rare photographs as well as the original Leech wood engravings and hand-colored etchings, supplemented by other contemporary illustrations by George Cruikshank, Gustave Dore, John Tenniel, and "Phiz." The Annotated Christmas Carol will be a literary feast for the whole family for generations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Such a delightful work... overflowing with good nature and good will towards the humblest and most friendless of our race." -- William Cullen Bryant
"Who can listen to objections regarding such a book as this? It seems to me a national benefit, and to every man or woman who reads it, a personal kindness." -- William Makepeace Thackeray
"Read with satisfaction; presented with satisfaction, and many Christmas wishes." -- Thomas Carlyle
"I like and admire... the exquisite scenes about the clerk and Tiny [Tim]; I thank the writer in my heart of hearts for them." -- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
"The story sings from end to end like a happy man going home.... It is lyric and exclamatory, from the first exclamatory words of it. It is strictly a Christmas Carol." -- G.K. Chesteron
