Bertha regains sight[edit]

Re: this line in the article:

"It is suggested ambiguously that Bertha regains her sight at the end."

I looked and didn't see where this is. Any hints? Fothergill Volkensniff IV (talk) 03:41, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Commercial success[edit]

The article says:

It was the best-selling of all five of the Christmas books. Its sale at the outset doubled that of both its predecessors.

This is contradicted by the Oxford Reader's Companion to Dickens which says:

Although John Forster's claim that its sales "doubled" those of the Carol and Chimes is incorrect, reviews were generally favorable and it quickly went through two editions.."

I've removed from the article since it appears to be a common misconception. Fothergill Volkensniff IV (talk) 18:57, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Actual Publisher?[edit]

I have the impression that Chapman & Hall was actually the original publisher. (As is true with "A Christmas Carol" and "The Chimes." Does anyone have any insight into this?
