Nast's Santa Claus about to come down the chimney...
Item # 653138
January 01, 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.
