Very displayable Thomas Nast Santa Claus on the front page...
Item # 173788
January 3, 1874
HARPER'S WEEKLY January 3, 1874 The entire front page features a terrific & very desirable Thomas Nast illustration: "Christmas Eve - Santa Claus Waiting for the Children to Get to Sleep." which is very displayable (see photo). Nast Santa Claus prints are very desirable as he is credited with creating the modern "jolly" version of Santa.
Inside is found a wealth of other Christmas-related prints including a two-thirds pg. illus. of "Christmas Day - Far From Home."; two-thirds pg. illus. of "The Christmas Dinner Safe."; full pg. illus. of "Christmas Time - Won at a Turkey Raffle."; full pg. illus. of "Christmas Time - The Feathered Victims' Last Breakfast."; two-thirds pg. illus. of "The Jester's Revenge."; two-thirds pg. Nast illus. of "The Centennial Tea Party."; full pg. illus. of "The Ghosts Frightened By men."; two-thirds pg. illus. of "The United States Senate in Session."
Note: Due to this issue being the first within a bound volume (from where most are archived) and with the key Nast print being on the front page, this may be the most difficult Nast Santa print to be found in fully 1st-rate condition.
