The Morgan Library & Museum was formed in 1906 to hold the private collection of banking magnate J.P. Morgan, including
manuscripts, printed books, prints, and drawings. Items of special prominence in Morgan’s collection include illuminated and
original manuscripts, works by Sir Walter Scott and de Balzac, and drawings by masterful artists like Leonardo, Raphael,
Picasso, Michelangelo, and Rembrandt. Interestingly, Morgan was apparently also drawn to unusual collectibles to add to his
holdings, including scraps of paper written on by Bob Dylan for what would become “Blowin’ in the Wind,” concept drawings for
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s The Little Prince and a Charles Dickens manuscript of A Christmas Carol.
