Summary A miser learns the true meaning of Christmas when three ghostly visitors review his past and foretell his future.
"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 extensive deletions, emendations, and insertions in Dickens's own hand. For the first time in a beautiful and affordable trade edition, A Christmas Carol: The Original Manuscript Edition presents that invaluable manuscript in a digitally photographed, high-resolution, full-color fascimile that reveals every nuance of Dickens's creative process and every changehe made to the manuscript. Also included is a handsomely typeset version of the story displayed on facing pages with the facsimile, so readers can follow along and see how Dickens crafted his enduring masterpiece."--Dust jacket flap.
