About this Book

Charles Dickens’s immortal story of Christmas …

“Dickens dead! Then will Father Christmas die, too?,” wailed a young girl in London on hearing of Charles Dickens's death in 1870.

Her panic was understandable. More than any other single person, Charles Dickens expressed the Victorian era's nostalgia for long forgotten rural Christmas traditions and created an ideal of the holiday as a time of concern for others, and family cheer that we still cherish today.

And one book above all others established Dickens's extraordinary influence on how we view and celebrate the holiday: A Christmas Carol, one of the most universally beloved and influential works of fiction ever written.

Now, Easton Press presents renowned illustrator Robert Ingpen's acclaimed rendition of this great classic: A Christmas Carol – an exclusive Collector's Edition personally autographed by the multi-award-winning artist Robert Ingpen.

The inspiring story of Christmas redemption in a beautiful illustrated and signed edition.


The most famous of all Christmas stories was written as an act of social protest. Outraged by the Victorian era's treatment of the working poor, Dickens hoped his tale of a greedy businessman transformed by an eerie Christmas Eve visitation would be a literary “sledge-hammer” blow “on behalf of the poor and unfortunate.”

Published on December 19, 1843, the first edition of A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost-Story of Christmas sold out by Christmas Day. It has remained in print ever since, and today it is almost universal to regard the holiday as a time of humanitarian giving and generosity.

The Collector's Edition A Christmas Carol features the illustrations of Robert Ingpen, whose dazzling draftsmanship and mastery of warm color have made him the preeminent illustrator of children's classics and won him the highest honor in children's book illustration, the Hans Christian Andersen Medal.

Combining rich, muted tones and detailed depictions of the Victorian objects mentioned in Dickens's text, Ingpen's 70 atmospheric full-color images for A Christmas Carol powerfully evoke 1840s London and are regarded as among the artist's very finest work.
