Nast's Santa Claus about to come down the chimney...



Item # 653138

January 1, 1876

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Jan. 1, 1876  Although there are several Christmas-themed print,  perhaps the best  is the  large doublepage centerfold by Thomas Nast (considered the creator of the modern version of Santa Claus) captioned: "The Watch On Christmas Eve" showing two children sitting in anticipation, by a fireplace.
And equally as nice, and also by Thomas Nast, is the three-quarter page in the "Supplement" captioned: "Seeing Santa Claus" showing a young boy watching Santa Claus about to come down the chimney. This is a rather famous print.
Complete in 20 pages with the Supplement, never bound nor trimmed with wider margins than normal. The ftpg. & some others are toned but the Nast centerfold has minimal toning, and the Santa Claus print in the Supplement is in great condition.

Item from Catalog 277 (released for December, 2018)...
