TOTC: Original Manuscript

http://www.vam.ac.uk/content/articles/c/charles-dickens-a-tale-of-two-cities/

I thought I would re-post Douglas Dodds’ link to the original manuscript of TOTC, which has been digitised by the Victoria & Albert Museum in London (just in case you missed his original post).

Douglas says: ‘The page-turning software requires Flash, but you can browse through the entire manuscript. It’s quite difficult to read, but it gives a sense of how the novelist revised the text as he went along. We’ve also digitised The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and much of David Copperfield.’

Thanks, Douglas!
