In the history of English literature, Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, which has been continuously in print simply because it was first published in the winter of 1843, stands out as the quintessential Christmas story. Printed on heavy, cream-colored paper stock, the edges from the pages happen to be left rough, simulating the way in which the story may nicely have appeared in Dickens's personal time. Shinn, a well-known artist in his time, was a common illustrator of newspapers and magazines whose function displayed a remarkable affinity for the stories of Charles Dickens, evoking the bustling street life with the mid-1800s. Even though countless editions of this classic happen to be published over the years, this one stands out as specifically beautiful, nostalgic, and evocative of the spirit of Christmas. What tends to make this charming edition of Dickens's immortal tale so special will probably be the collection of 80 vivid illustrations by Everett Shinn (1876-1953 ).
