A Christmas Carol, Hardback Book

A Christmas Carol Hardback

Part of the Everyman's Library CHILDREN'S CLASSICS series

Hardback

Description

The most popular of all ghost stories was first published on 17 December 1843, and by Christmas Eve 6, 000 copies had been sold at a published price of five shillings.

The story of Scrooge, a miser who becomes a different man when he is presented with visions of past, present and future by Marley's ghost, was an immediate success and has remainded so ever since.

It is a book to read on Christmas Eve beside a blazing fire - and the best introduction to Dickens for young readers not quite ready for his longer novels.

Arthur Rackham, master of the fantastic, illustrated the story in 1915.
