A Christmas Carol


Thanks to WW Norton and Company Publishers we have 5 copies of this beautiful edition of A Christmas Carol to give away.  This is a first-ever trade edition of the original manuscript of the much loved Charles Dickens Christmas classic.

This book, produced in partnership with the Morgan Library & Museum in New York, wonderfully showcases a facsimile of Dickens’s handwritten manuscript of A Christmas Carol including all his original corrections and annotations.   All pages in Dickens’s own handwriting are featured alongside a typeset version of the story, with a fascinating introduction by the Morgan’s chief literary curator on the history of the story and a new foreword by Colm Tóibín celebrating its timeless appeal.
