Published only one year after the English first, 'A Christmas Carol' is most probably Dickens best-known story. It is also the most-filmed of Dickens's stories, with many versions dating from the early years of cinema. Here is the Atlantic Monthly Press re-issue in facsimile of the original 1843 first edition with a Foreword by A. Edward Newton. "This impression derives from H.S. Nichol's facsimile edition of 1914." - Gimbel B138.
