* Santa Claus - (2) Thomas Nast print
There are two very nice Thomas Nast Christmas prints in this issue, one being a great doublepage centerfold captioned: "Here We Are Again" showing a full-figure Santa Claus, with toys, next to a fireplace. This doublepage print is tipped-in without binding holes & is in very nice condition. "Father Time" is featured as well (see). The other Nast Christmas print is: "A Christmas Sketch--Five O'Clock in the Morning" showing two young, very excited girls anticipating Christmas morning (see).
Thomas Nast is considered the creator of the modern version of Santa Claus.
The complete issue, slightly irregular at the spine, nice condition.
