A lovely reproduction of the 1912 edition of Clement Moore's classic Christmas poem—originally published in 1823 as "A Visit from St. Nicholas"—this book for all ages features the superb watercolors and ink drawings of Jessie Willcox Smith, one of the leading female illustrators from the Golden Age of American Illustration. Each four-line verse is treated to an illuminated initial and most feature a color drawing as well, on cream pages with fine ruled borders. The handsome book also has red endpapers and a laminated foil-stamped cover.
