‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens

In the Library we have a classic festive tale: a copy of the Folio Society’s ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens, complete with original illustrations by John Leech. Eric Crozier offered to write a libretto for Britten based on this book but sadly this never came to fruition.
