December 18, 1897
HARPER'S WEEKLY - CHRISTMAS, New York, December 18, 1897 Quite rare to find this issue with the desirable Maxfield Parrish outer wrapper still present.
The full front page is a nice print: "Santa Claus's Return Home." by the famed artist W. A. Rogers, showing a full-figure Santa Claus with various elves. Inside is a full pg. illus. of "A Christmas Hymn."; a full pg:"Christmas Carnival on the Ice, Amsterdam."; a full page color print: "I've Kept My Ears Open to all Your Doings" plus other Christmas-themed prints.
Of special interest is the Supplement which includes a duo-tone doublepage centerfold: "A Christmas Welsh Rabbit" by famed artist F. S. Church.
Complete in 40 pages, an old mend to the margin on the reverse of the wrapper and to margins of several leaves inside, nice condition.
