"Last of Spirits" Stave Four


“Last of Spirits” is found in Stave 4 of A Christmas Carol (1843). It was created by John Leech and is a hand-coloured steel engraving. It is also 10.5 x 8.2 cm vignetted, and can be found on page 150. The image shows The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come pointing down at Scrooge’s grave, as Scrooge is kneeling with his face in his hands. The illustration ultimately depicts emotion as we are physically able to see a transformation in Scrooge.
