Every Christmas, the Morgan Library & Museum in Manhattan displays one of the crown jewels of its extraordinary collection: the original manuscript of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol with its detailed emendations, deletions and insertions in Dickens' hand. Here, for the first time in a beautiful trade edition, is a facsimile of that invaluable manuscript, along with a typeset version of the story, a fascinating introduction by the Morgan's chief literary curator on the history of the story and a new foreword by Colm T?ib?n celebrating its timeless appeal.
