Best of all Nast Santa Claus prints!

Item # 697434

January 01, 1881

HARPER'S WEEKLY, New York, January 1, 1881  The full front page is a Thomas Nast illustration: "The Dear Little Boy That Thought Christmas Came Oftener." Inside is a full pg. illus. of "A 'Possum Hunt in Old Virginia."
But certainly the most notable print is the terrific doublepage centerfold by Thomas Nast: "MERRY OLD SANTA CLAUS", a classic image & perhaps one of the most reproduced of all Santa Claus prints used today in a wealth of advertisements and Christmas-themed promotions, etc.
This issue has some slight toning on the margin of the front page however, the key centerfold print is in spectacular condition. Complete in 16 pages and in unusually good condition.
