Special Collections staff
A Christmas Carol is arguably Charles Dickens best Christmas story, but he wrote several other Christmas stories including two more novellas: The Chimes and A Cricket by the Hearth. Dickens’ other Christmas stories appeared in his literary magazine Household Words. On display we have few early editions of Dickens’ novellas, a first edition of A Christmas Carol, and some finely illustrated 20th-century editions. These works are all part of our larger Dickens Collection which contains over 700 volumes.
