NY: McLoughlin Bros, 1895. Tall quarto. (6)ff. Illustrated throughout in color and black & white. Contents include Clement Clark Moore's "A Visit from St. Nicholas," "Before Christmas" by Glenn Holley, "The Tale of a Christmas Stocking" by Frank J. Bonnelle, and four other Christmas-themed rhymes. In the publisher's die-cut chromolithographed stiff wrappers featuring a full-length portrait of St. Nicholas himself, snow-covered Christmas tree in hand, standing next to a donkey bearing baskets full of snow-covered toys. This large format shaped book is the least common of the McLoughlin editions featuring Moore's enduring Christmas poem. Apart from a very shallow crease at St. Nicholas's head and a tidy ink inscription on the inside front cover, this is a fine, bright copy of a rare survivor.
