“There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”

― Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

 

Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ is perhaps one of the most beloved English novels of all time, let alone the most well-known holiday season story. Dickens’s masterpiece follows the story of Ebenezer Scrooge and his being haunted by three ghosts of Christmases through time. First published in 1843, this work covers various English Christmas traditions and has never been out of print since its first print run.

 

This rare 1844 first American edition is incredibly valuable and a highly desirable printing of one of the most memorable English novels of all time. The Carey & Hart publishing is considered the much more desirable edition of the 1844 American printings.
