The display of the original manuscript of A Christmas Carol in Pierpont Morgan's library is an annual tradition at the Morgan. Charles Dickens wrote the tale in a six-week window in time for publication during the Christmas season of 1843 and had the manuscript bound for Thomas Mitton, his solicitor. It passed through several owners before Pierpont Morgan acquired it in the 1890s.
