by Charles Dickens
A Christmas Carol is surely the best-known and best-loved Christmas story of all time. The miser Scrooge is confronted by the ghosts of Christmas past, Christmas present and Christmas yet to come, sees the error of his ways, and he is filled with the Christmas spirit of kindness and generosity. The largest Turkey in town is bought and dispatched to Bob Cratchit, and, as Tiny Tim proclaims “God Bless us every one!”This eBookTreasures facsimile edition is a reproduction of an incredible illuminated manuscript, produced by the artist Alan Tabor in 1916. Every page is handwritten in the gothic style and the whole book is filled with illustrations of Scrooge, the ghosts, the Crachits and many others. It has been produced by digitally photographing the original handwritten manuscript, donated by Alan Tabor’s widow to the John Rylands Library in 1958.
