One of six beloved Christmas classics in collectible hardcover editions

 

First published on December 19, 1843,
A Christmas Carol was an instant classic: Londoners thronged to hear Dickens read it in person and bought out the first printing in days. Its reception was so ecstatic that it is credited with helping to revive interest among the Victorians in Christmas traditions, including caroling and holiday cards, as well as inciting an unexpected wave of charitable giving from Britain’s Industrial Age robber barons. Originally conceived as a pamphlet against exploitative capitalism before taking its current form, it has inspired dozens of theatrical and movie adaptions, and its characters, from Scrooge to Tiny Tim, are forever inscribed in our hearts and minds.

 

Penguin Christmas Classics

 

Give the gift of literature this Christmas.

 

Penguin Christmas Classics honor the power of literature to keep on giving through the ages. The six volumes in the series are not only our most beloved Christmas tales, they also have given us much of what we love about the holiday itself.
A Christmas Carol revived in Victorian England such Christmas hallmarks as the Christmas tree, holiday cards, and caroling. The Yuletide yarns of Anthony Trollope popularized throughout the British Empire and around the world the trappings of Christmas in London.
The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus created the origin story for the presiding spirit of Christmas as we know it. The holiday tales of Louisa May Alcott shaped the ideal of an American Christmas.
The Night Before Christmas brought forth some of our earliest Christmas traditions as passed down through folk tales. And
The Nutcracker inspired the most famous ballet in history, one seen by millions in the twilight of every year.

 

Beautifully designed hardcovers—with foil-stamped jackets, decorative endpapers, and nameplates for personalization—in a small trim size that makes them perfect stocking stuffers, Penguin Christmas Classics embody the spirit of giving that is at the heart of our most time-honored stories about the holiday.

With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

Charles Dickens was born in 1812 near Portsmouth where his father was a clerk in the navy pay office. The family moved to London in 1823, but their fortunes were severely impaired and Dickens' father was imprisoned for debt. Dickens himself was sent to work in a blacking-warehouse, an experience which deeply affected him. In 1833 he began contributing stories to newspapers and magazines, and in 1836 started the serial publication of
Pickwick Papers. Thereafter, Dickens published his major novels over the course of the next twenty years, from
Nicholas Nickleby to
Little Dorrit. He also edited the journals
Household Words and
All the Year Round. Dickens died in 1870, aged fifty-eight.
