Discover this selection of the best of Dickens’ Christmas stories and writings in one beautiful gift edition.

The ultimate Christmas present.

It is said that Charles Dickens invented Christmas, and within these pages you’ll certainly find all the elements of a quintessential traditional Christmas brought to vivid life: snowy rooftops, gleaming shop windows, steaming bowls of punch, plum puddings like speckled cannon balls, sage and onion stuffing, miracles, magic, charity and goodwill.

This beautifully produced Vintage Classics edition gathers together not only Dickens’ Christmas Books (‘A Christmas Carol’, ‘The Chimes’, ‘The Battle of Life’, ‘The Cricket on the Hearth’ and ‘The Haunted Man’) but also stories that Dickens wrote for the special seasonal editions of his periodicals All the Year Round and Household Words, and a festive tale from The Pickwick Papers.

A must-have for Christmas, this edition should be as necessary to your festivities as holly, mistletoe and silver bells.
