Dickens was always fond of A Christmas Carol and the theme of generosity portrayed in Scrooge''s transformation was close to his heart. He read from the book to an audience shortly before his death.

Divided into the musical staves of a carol rather than chapters, the story run as follows:

Stave 1: Marley''s Ghost

Stave 2: The First of the Three Spirits

Stave 3: The Second of the Three Spirits

Stave 4: The Last of the Spirits

Stave 4: The End of It

This beautifully illustrated edition makes a great gift item or a collector''s item. Illustrations are in black and white.
