Article – A Town Buys a Rare Book

This goes a bit beyond our scope of reviews, discussions, and posts about articles related to reading and literature, but I think it’s rather fitting.

This article from Fine Books Magazine tells the tale of why a particular copy of Charles Dickens’ The Christmas Carol is so important to one particular town. This is one of those instances where a personal dedication by an author, which is usually worth less than a more-generic signed copy, can make a copy very, very valuable to a particular person or place.
