Charles Dickens’s original manuscript of "A Christmas Carol" on display

Heading to New York City this holiday season? Be sure to stop by The Morgan Library & Museum for a chance to see Charles Dickens' original manuscript of "A Christmas Carol," which will be on display from Nov. 20 through Jan. 13.

From The Morgan:
Every holiday season, the Morgan displays Charles Dickens’s original manuscript of A Christmas Carol in Pierpont Morgan’s historic Library. Dickens wrote his iconic tale in a six-week flurry of activity, beginning in October 1843 and ending in time for Christmas publication. He had the manuscript bound in red morocco as a gift for his solicitor, Thomas Mitton. The manuscript then passed through several owners before Pierpont Morgan acquired it in the 1890s. 
Find out more about what's happening at the Morgan this holiday season in their news release. Sign up to get the institution's emails in your inbox by visiting www.themorgan.org and clicking the "E-NEWS" button in the center of the page at the top.
