See the Christmas Carol Manuscript (About.com European History)
An interesting history-related post from About.com European History:
There is only one extant manuscript for A Christmas Carol, handwritten by Charles Dickens in 1843. It's usually difficult to view, but the New York Times has a digitised version. If you're interested in seeing the original document, this is a golden chance, and you can see some of his revisions.
Read the original post.
