I snuggle up with this book every Christmas by the tree. However, it is a story to be enjoyed all year round. A pity we all have to wait till December in order to feel ducky about celebrating the Christian faith. A paragraph of Dickens a day will keep the devil away.

Very nice book as well as a collectors item...

To stay within the confines of this book... the quality of this publication of the two most popular Christmas stories was very well done. The quality is in line with those books put out by Easton Press, but without the extreme price associated with their books. I have several Easton Press books and I have this leather bound book displayed right next to them. The only difference is this Deluxe Edition by Literary Classics has a bit of a cushions cover where most Easton Press books aren't. The paper used is of standard hardbound paper stock and will stand up to the test of time very well (I think). The two Christmas classics included in the book "A Christmas Carol" and "The Night Before Christmas" are both edited well and presented with a series of older reproduction prints. The few pictures are very nice for the time period they were made in, which reflects well on the book itself. It would have been nice if there were more graphic prints within the two stories for children to look at so they could follow along, but then again, this isn't exactly a childrens book either. I also loved the fact that Literary Classics stayed true with the authors original texts and did not stray with modern time transalations of the narratives, but stayed with the original manuscripts. The old english grammer is wonderful as tradition calls for, but sometimes it can be a little hard to understand. This book will always have a place of honor in my library for many Christmas' to come and I would highly recommed it to anyone who is looking for a quality bound reprint that stays true to the original manuscripts. If you are wanting a book that has more pictures/graphics for children to read and look at, then this book isn't for you.

Must Read Classic

This book is well worth the read. At 156 pages, you can whip through this book in a couple of days. Illustrations are few, but excellent. Quality of book is great for the price. This is a nice addition to any library.

Possibly the best "Christmas Carol" ever

Many versions of Dickins' classic "A Christmas Carol" are actually abridgements (done more or less smoothly) but this version is complete and unabridged. Even if you think you are familiar with the book you may find upon reading this one that you previously had read a shortened version! The completeness of this volume would be reason enough to add it to your library, but the quality of the pages, typeface, and above all the lovely illustrations scattered throughout further commend it. I have bought copies for all 3 of my grown children--because every family deserves to own a complete version of this classic story and this one is the best I have ever seen.

Beautiful Volume

I collect "A Christmas Carol" and this is a particularly lovely volume. The illustrations are wonderful and the overall quality, printing, binding and paper, is terrific. This is definitely in my top three favorites of all the different versions I own.
