Synopsis

Perhaps no single story has endured as a symbol, repository, talisman and living emblem of the goodwill and redemptive qualities associated with Christmas quite like Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." A misanthropic, jaded miser, Ebeneezer Scrooge, finds himself visited by a series of ghosts on Christmas Eve, illuminating the true meaning and humanist potential of the holiday in a manner sure to convert the hardest of cynics. Since its publication in 1843, "A Christmas Carol" has helped to define not just the spirit of Christmas but of every day as an opportunity to spread "goodwill to man."

Amazon.com Review
In the history of English literature, Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, which has been continuously in print since it was first published in the winter of 1843, stands out as the quintessential Christmas story. What makes this charming edition of Dickens's immortal tale so special is the collection of 80 vivid illustrations by Everett Shinn (1876-1953). Shinn, a well-known artist in his time, was a popular illustrator of newspapers and magazines whose work displayed a remarkable affinity for the stories of Charles Dickens, evoking the bustling street life of the mid-1800s. Printed on heavy, cream-colored paper stock, the edges of the pages have been left rough, simulating the way in which the story might have appeared in Dickens's own time. Though countless editions of this classic have been published over the years, this one stands out as particularly beautiful, nostalgic, and evocative of the spirit of Christmas.
