A Christmas Carol, The Original Manuscript

On returning home today, we found in the front door a copy of “A Christmas Carol”, by Charles Dickens. The cover is slightly water damaged, but it’s otherwise in good shape. It’s a 1967 edition which contains facsimiles of the original manuscript across the page from the print version, and with the John Leech illustrations (the ones that were in the first edition).

I don’t know who left it there, but, whoever it was, thank you. It was very thoughtful of you.

(Update: Turns out I do know who left it. And she even told me ahead of time that she was going to, but it completely slipped my mind. Thanks, Aunt Pat!!)
