Item # 174310
January 4, 1879
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Jan. 4, 1879 The full front page is a nice Christmas-themed print by Thomas Nast, captioned: "Christmas Post" showing a boy mailing a letter to Santa Claus. The other great print is the doublepage centerfold, also by Thomas Nast, captioned: "Merry Christmas" which shows five young children hanging on a jolly Santa Claus. Thomas Nast is credited with creating the modern version of Santa as we know him today.
Other prints within include a fullpg: "The Blackville Debating Society..."; a halfpg: "Playing At Store", a less than halfpg: "The Poor Musician--Before the Mirth Begins"; a fullpg: "Under The Old Flag"; and a nearly fullpg: "The Afghan War--A Punjab Regiment on the March".
