Overview

A Christmas Carol: The Original Manuscript Edition by Charles Dickens

A first-ever trade edition of the original manuscript of the beloved Christmas classic.

Every year at the holidays, the historic Morgan Library & Museum in Manhattan displays one of the crown jewels of its extraordinary collection: the original manuscript of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, with its detailed emendations, deletions, and insertions in Dickens’s own hand. Here, for the first time in a beautiful trade edition, A Christmas Carol: The Original Manuscript Edition presents 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 Tóibín celebrating its timeless appeal.

I've known the story of "A Christmas Carol" from seeing some of the movies, but I have never read the book until recently. The book is definitely better than the movies. This book is heartbreaking in the best way possible. It is one of the most beautifully written books I have ever read, I found the writing poetic. I loved everything about the story and seeing Scrooge recognize that he needed to change. I will definitely be reading this book again, it has become one of my favorite Christmas books!!
