Item description for A Christmas Carol (Green Integer) by Charles Dickens...
Few readers need introduction to Charles Dickens's great Christmas classic of Ebenezer Scrooge, his dastardly treatment of his employees and family, and his "ba-humbug" attitude towards Christmas-all changed by a nightmarish sleep of visions of past, present, and future.
Although numerous other editions of this book are in print, few are as lovely as the Green Integer edition, edited from the original 1843 edition and corrected by Douglas Messerli. The book will be available for Christmas 2001.

More About Charles Dickens
Charles Dickens was born on February 7, 1812, in Landport, Portsea, England. He died in Kent on June 9, 1870. The second of eight children of a family continually plagued by debt, the young Dickens came to know not only hunger and privation, but also the horror of the infamous debtors' prison and the evils of child labor. A turn of fortune in the shape of a legacy brought release from the nightmare of prison and -slave- factories and afforded Dickens the opportunity of two years' formal schooling at Wellington House Academy. He worked as an attorney's clerk and newspaper reporter until his Sketches by Boz (1836) and The Pickwick Papers (1837) brought him the amazing and instant success that was to be his for the remainder of his life. In later years, the pressure of serial writing, editorial duties, lectures, and social commitments led to his separation from Catherine Hogarth after twenty-three years of marriage. It also hastened his death at the age of fifty-eight, when he was characteristically engaged in a multitude of work. Michael Slater is Emeritus Professor at Birkbeck College, London & a past President of the Dickens Fellowship & the Dickens Society of America.
