Both the poem written out by the author in 1856 and one of the first American color illustrated childrens books have been hidden for years in museums and private collections. The Huntingtons facsimile edition now makes them available for all to enjoy. Readers and collectors will cherish and appreciate the books colorful, quaint illustrations and fine quality printing.About the Author:
Clement Clarke Moore (1779-1863) was a professor of Oriental and Greek literature at the General Theological Seminary, where he published biblical and historical studies. He was the first writer to portray St. Nicholas as a jolly, benevolent figure, and he invented many of the attributes we associate with Santa Claus today. Curiously, he never intended to publish the poem.
