Item # 606997
January 03, 1874
HARPER'S WEEKLY January 3, 1874 The entire front page features a terrific & very desirable Thomas Nast illustration: "Christmas Eve - Santa Claus Waiting for the Children to Get to Sleep." which is very displayable (see). Thomas Nast is credited with creating the modern "jolly" version of Santa.
Inside is found a wealth of other Christmas-related prints including a two-thirds pg. illus. of "Christmas Day - Far From Home."; two-thirds pg. illus. of "The Christmas Dinner Safe."; full pg. illus. of "Christmas Time - Won at a Turkey Raffle."; full pg. illus. of "Christmas Time - The Feathered Victims' Last Breakfast."; two-thirds pg. illus. of "The Jester's Revenge."; two-thirds pg. Nast illus. of "The Centennial Tea Party."; full pg. illus. of "The Ghosts Frightened By men."; two-thirds pg. illus. of "The United States Senate in Session."
The front page Nast print is in uncommonly nice, clean condition. There is a bit of disbinding residue at the spine but not close to the image. A great display issue.
