Shelfari edited the description of Christmas Stories Thursday, November 19, 2009.
This Elibron Classics book is a facsimile reprint of a 1846 edition by Bernhard Tauchnitz, Leipzig. The subject of countless adaptations (including well over a dozen films, several musicals, and countless stage versions), A Christmas Carol needs little introduction. A bitter portrayal of the social ills Dickens battled throughout his career, the story tells of a heartless moneylender visited by a group of spirits on Christmas Eve and presented with revelatory visions of the past, present, and future. The present edition of A Christmas Carol includes two other works by Dickens: The Chimes and The Cricket on the Hearth.
