“A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens is rarely, if ever, out of print but it is also rarely available free of charge.
Published by Simon and Schuster Digital Sales, the edition includes not only the classic story, the publisher said, but questions for discussion and historical facts about the book and its author.
The book is illustrated by the late Everett Shinn, a respected and talented cartoonist among journalists who was an illustrator for such varied publications as “Life,” “Look,” “Vanity Fair,” “Harper’s” and the old Philadelphia Press.
“Though countless editions of this classic have been published over the years,” Amazon said, “this one stands out as particularly beautiful, nostalgic, and evocative of the spirit of Christmas.”
