There is a new display up in the library:
On this Day, December 19, 1843 Charles Dickens published A Christmas Carol Illustrated by John Leech.
Did you know? After the success of selling out of copies of A Christmas Carol, the book was pirated. Charles Dickens sued the publishers and won the case; however, “he received no damages because they went bankrupt.”
