A Christmas Carol

December 1, 2009

Every year during the holiday season, the Morgan Library and Museum in New York exhibits one page of Charles Dickens’s handwritten manuscript of A Christmas Carol. The page is displayed under glass in what was once the library of John Pierpont Morgan.

Now, for the first time, the Morgan has allowed The New York Times to photograph and post the entire manuscript online. See for yourself the editorial changes Dickens made before he sent it to the printer. The public is also invited to submit which edit is the “most interesting.” For more, click here.


Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
