Famous Thomas Nast Santa Claus print...

Item # 653137

December 30, 1876

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Dec. 30, 1876 

* Santa Claus - Christmas
* Thomas Nast print

The full front page shows: "Christmas-Eve In A Light House". Inside has a fullpg: "Christmas Eve--Getting Ready For Santa Claus" "Christmas In A Fishing Smack" and a few others.
But the prime Christmas print has to be the very nice full page Thomas Nast print: " 'Twas The Night Before Christmas" showing a child hanging a Christmas stocking at the fireplace, with a cameo print of Santa Claus in the fireplace screen. Nast is noted for creating the modern-day version of Santa Claus.
Sixteen pages, never bound nor trimmed with wider margins than normal, minimal margin wear, very nice condition.
