About this Item

Large (staple bound) paperback in good to very good condition. Unpaginated with beautiful illustrations throughout. Story starts on the inside of the front cover right on to the inside of the back cover. (14 pages), This is an exact reprint of an early edition of the Night Before Christmas. The Night Before Christmas, one of the first American children's clasics, was written by Clement Clarke Moore in 1822 for his own six children and given to them as a Christmas gift. The "Charles Graham" edition was printed in 1870. It was the first time that holly was associated with Christmas in illustrations and the first representation of Santa Claus dressed in red cloth coat trimmed with white fur. The type use in this edition is Ringlet. The artwork was devised with color overlays on a black outline. The original work was printed by lithography which allowed this exact reprint to be made by the dot-etch process. Some of the best illustrations we have seen. The text itself is in very good condition, but the cover has minor edgewear (no tears) with some light soiling and stains on the front and back. Also has a piece of tape remnant on the back.
