Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserly, grim old man about to spend another Christmas alone and discontented. But his plans are overturned when three spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come are sent to Scrooge to show him the outcome of forsaking Christmas and the purpose of a Christmas well kept. Charles Dickens' beloved story and its heartwarming message have enjoyed lasting popularity since the book's first appearance in 1843.

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.
