Famous Thomas Nast Santa Claus print...

Item # 697286

December 30, 1876

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

* Santa Claus - Christmas
* Thomas Nast illustration

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.
The Nast print is in great condition, as are the others. The back leaf is partially loose but the remainder of the issue is very nice.
