When Dickens' A Christmas Carol rolls out, you know that the holidays are in the air; and there is no better to acquaint or, more likely, reacquaint yourself with this classic than Michael Patrick Hearn's meticulously annotated edition. This version does what no earlier one had: It combines the original 1843 novel that most of us first came to love with the text that Dickens prepared for his 1867-1868 public reading in America. Our peerless editor didn't stop there: He lavishly sprinkled the text with not only the original Leech wood engravings; but also generous batches of other contemporary illustrations and rare photographs. For anyone who hearkens to the Ghosts of Christmas Past, this gift book will renew your commitment.
