Around the World with Santa Claus

£14.99

Product description

No date but this is a replica of the antique original, possibly from the 1920s. The grey card covers have a picture of Santa on the front looking much more authentic than the routine Father Christmas of modern times with his fur cuffs and collar and his black and turquoise hat. The back has a smaller picture of a little girl sitting on her bed with a doll. The book has at some time been bent forward so it does not lie quite flat and there are small creases down the spine. This is the story, told in verse, of 'wee Fred and sister Flo' travelling the world with Santa. The endpapers have illustrations in black, white and red. The rest, sometimes full-page, sometimes several pictures on a page, are detailed and full-colour. The verse, often in tiny font, is interspersed. Internally in very good condition. An unusual Christmas item.
