About this Item

Slim, square small octavo in maroon cloth with spine lettering and ornament in gilt; 96 pps; illustrated with ornamental capitals, woodcut vignettes and frontispiece woodcut of Santa Claus in front of a Christmas tree surrounded by a family with multiple assorted children. A very good copy with some spotting and rubbing about the edges; spine somewhat rubbed but gilt is still generally bright; effaced early ownership sig. ffep. The book carries no date but we believe it is the 1863 third edition. Laid in is a letter from a New York bookseller dated 1940 quoting this title and one other Christmas book to (apparently) the buyer. Quite scarce, OCLC locates only three copies in American libraries. Bookseller Inventory # D8536
