Description: How Christmas used to be celebrated among family, friends, and neighbours in America is the theme of this warmly nostalgic and authentic memoir – the very first to evoke the essence of the American Edwardian era.

Charming, heartwarming – and at times amusing – full-colour illustrations (many of which are double-spread) are to be found throughout, capturing the very spirit of old world America.

Sky blue cloth boards with a gilded wreath. Jacket has a 2 cm (¾″) closed tear at the top, and some localised scratches, but is otherwise complete and still bears its original price of $15.00 on the inside flap. The book itself is in excellent condition: the pages are clean, crisp and very tightly bound.

A lovely copy of a very scarce book.

Measures 28.5 cm × 22 cm (11.4″ × 8.8″). Large 4to. 127 pp.

Price: £30.00
