A CHRISTMAS CAROL: The Original Manuscript Edition

A CHRISTMAS CAROL: The Original Manuscript Edition

CHARLES DICKENS    Book Number: 86564    Product format: Hardback

Exquisitely produced and imported by Bibliophile from New York this is the very first time we have seen this superb facsimile reproduction of the manuscript of A Christmas Carol. We can follow every stroke of Dickens's pen, every correction and replacement, and the white heat of excitement as he created his timeless Christmas masterpiece. Charles Dickens wrote the 68 page manuscript in black ink with a goose-quill pen over six feverish weeks in 1843. The effort was emotionally exhausting for the novelist and he described how he 'wept, and laughed, and wept again, and excited himself in a most extraordinary manner, in the composition.' Here for the first time in a beautiful full colour facsimile is that manuscript with a page-by-page transcription of the story handsomely typeset on the facing pages so you can follow along. This unique edition also includes an original foreword by Colm Tóbín plus a remarkable history of the composition, publication and reception of the story. Scrooge as never seen before! 138pp.
