Publisher Description

This Top Five Classics edition of Dickens’s immortal classic, A Christmas Carol, includes the original color illustrations by John Leech, as well as another 20 woodcut engravings by Sol Eytinge Jr. from the 1869 American edition by Ticknor & Fields. Beautifully designed and carefully proofed for digital publication. Includes a short introduction and bio.


Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly old curmudgeon who spurns Christmas as a “humbug,” is given the chance to redeem himself through the intervention of four Spirits on Christmas Eve. If reading Dickens’s most beloved story doesn't put you in the true spirit of Christmas, you may be beyond hope.


As Scrooge’s nephew Fred said, “I have always thought of Christmas time…as a good time: a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.”


Or as Tiny Tim put it more succinctly, “God bless us every one!”

    A Christmas Carol

    I'm reading this 2 days before Christmas Eve , and I've read it since I was a small boy , must still rate as one of the all-time great ghost story's . It's true testament of dickens that the tale is frightening and relevant still today, well over a hundred years after his death !

    The real spirit of Christmas

    In a time where Christmas is little more than a commercial extravaganza, where we spend money like its going out of fashion, and we pile present after present on our children and loved ones in an effort to show our feelings, this book lets us look back to when Christmas was a time for joy, friendship, jollity and sharing. We all know the story of Ebenezer Scrooge but re-reading the book has another effect as well as entertainment. It makes us question how we "keep" Christmas and shows us how we ought to keep it.
