Description


This slipcase reproduction of the original 1843 edition of Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol features the pocket-sized book just as the first avid readers of A Christmas Carol would have experienced it - except this lovely deluxe gift edition is presented in a charming slipcase, so it makes a great holiday gift that will last year after year.

The book contains the original, color illustrations and woodcut designs by John Leech that were commissioned by Dickens himself for the first edition, as well as a reproduction of the front manuscript page with Dickens' handwritten holiday note. The book has gold gilted edges, an embossed cover with gold-foil lettering, and includes as introduction by G.K. Chesterton and a preface by B.W. Matz, the founder of the famed Dickens Fellowship.
