December 24, 1881

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, Dec. 24, 1881 

* Thomas Nast Santa Claus wood block engraving

The full front page is a great Santa Claus print by the famed artist Thomas Nast: "Caught!" showing Santa with a child's arms around him.
Thomas Nast is credited with creating the modern version of Santa Claus.
The doublepage centerfold is also a nice Thomas Nast Christmas print captioned: "Christmas Fancies - 'Don't You Wish You Wore Stockings?'" This print is partially mended on the reverse with some very discrete repair work, still quite nice for display.
Other prints within the issue are not Christmas-themed.
Sixteen pages, two archival mends, light damp stains to the right & bottom margins.
