A CHRISTMAS CAROL - and - THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH

By Dickens, Charles

London and Geneva: Blackie and Son, 1950. 240 pp. First thus - Both titles in a single volume. Actually undated - circa 1950.

Wear at the corners of the dustjacket with some chipping at the head of the spine; some nicks and short tears around the edges; no interior markings. Just as a matter of interest, A Christmas Carol has been filmed for theatres at least 19 times, starting with a short British film in 1901 called Scrooge, or, Marley's Ghost to, most recently - 2009 - with Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge - the most popular one still seems to be the one from 1951 with Alastair Sim as Scrooge. As for television, that began in 1944 until most recently, a direct to DVD in 2013 - The Smurfs: A Christmas Carol. Even radio was into it beginning on December 19, 1923 when the BBC broadcast an adaptation. The most recent one was December 18, 2015 starring Kathleen Turner in a live performance. And then there were a number of recordings, mostly on vinyl. And even four operas. But when it comes to editions of the actual book, well, maybe someone can count that high... . Later Printing. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good-. 12mo.
