Nice Thomas Nast Christmas centerfold...
Item # 633402
January 4, 1879
HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Jan. 4, 1879
* Thomas Nast
* Santa Claus
Although 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, this print is damaged as a portion to the right is missing. But 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. And this doublepage is tipped-in so no binding holes, making it very nice for display. It is in very nice condition (see).
Thomas Nast is credited with creating the modern version of Santa as we know him today.
Sixteen pages. Save for the front leaf damage & being a bit irregular at the spine, in nice condition.
