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.
This year the manuscript of A Christmas Carol is open to Dickens’s unforgettable character sketch of one of literature’s great villain-heroes, Ebenezer Scrooge—the “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner” who spent one crazy night with four ghosts and emerged transformed into “as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world.”
