"A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens (1843)

Elegant Ebooks has the first edition of Charles Dicken's famous Christmas story A Christmas Carol with illustrations by John Leech.

MARLEY’S GHOST

Marley was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge’s name was good upon ’Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to.

Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. [the rest]
