An enchanting view of yule-time past, A Christmas Treasury, with its charming Victorian-era color illustrations and its inspired selection of prose and poetry from around the world, offers adults and children alike a sublime treat. Eighty poems, songs, carols, and tales re-told--from old favorites like Silent Night to less-known gems from the sixteenth centuries--are complemented by over 100 illustrations, and vignettes on a wealth of Christmas traditions and historic events. From the tale of Black Peter, the evil elf, as told in the Netherlands, to Mexico and the legend of the Poinsettia, and British traditions that have made their way across the sea, A Christmas Treasury is truly a gift from around the globe.
