About this Item

7" x 4 1/4", 147 pgs; B/W frontispiece + 4 other illustrations; 'It is sad to be little & poor & black, & to have no relations. It is sad at any time, but on Christmas it seems even more so." (p. 13) Despite this depressing start, the story in this small book is actually one of hopes & dreams that are outshone by the fictional character's fictional reality. A little boy's career adventures take place in post Civil War New Orleans & whether the charm & accents in this book correspond to anything in history seems unimportant as the little George Washington Jones goes about making his Christmas wish come true. This is a Christmas story & should be loved for the good it invokes however imperfect the world it occurs in. No 'bah, humbug' for this book, its heart is based in kindness. Ink message on front free endpaper, moderate wearing of dark blue cloth binding at spine edges & corners, spine is much faded but illustration on front cover is only moderately so. G.
