'A Christmas Carol' — see the manuscript for the first time ever


Bonus: You can do so in the comfort of your own home or office, courtesy of The Morgan Library and Museum in New York City, which owns the manuscript, and the New York Times, which was allowed this year to photograph and display the entire handwritten manuscript on the Web, right here.

Above, the first page.

Here you can zoom in on four selected, heavily revised pages of the manuscript.

As a rule, the manuscript is exhibited each holiday season at the Morgan, but only one page is put on view each year, under glass.

A related Times article is here.
