The storybook, impressively produced and crisply analyzed by both Tóibín and Kiely, harbors the potential to joyfully transform a burdensome year of “misery to merriness.” A unique, ageless Yuletide treasure for fans and collectors alike.

Synopsis

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.
