Christmas on the Isthmus

By: Core, Sue

Price: $25.00

Publisher: Dobb's Ferry, New York, Claremont Press: 1935

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 18369A

Condition: Very Good

Book is clean and tightly bound with no names or writing. No dustjacket, but boards are cute and Christmas green. Looks like a children's book, but upon closer inspection proves to be a humorous take-off on Clement Moore's famous "The Night Before Christmas" -- with a few winks for grown-ups! The color and fabric of a Panamanian holiday shines through, as do the Panamanian people from the lottery vendors and C.Z. police to the commissary vendors and soldiers and sailors. Even the cockroaches and termites get a nod! This WAS 1935 though, so don't expect it to be P.C.. Nonetheless it's good natu... View more info

An Anthology of Christmas Prose and Verse

By: Kellerher, D. L.

Price: $30.00

Publisher: Great Britain, Cresset Press Ltd.: 1928

Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 24174

Condition: Good

An uncommon book with an excellent interior and a good-to-fair exterior, the latter due to a cloth binding of a type of which cannot be easily cleaned. Consequently, there is light overall soil, a few small spots to upper front corner and a bit of darkening in the same area, as well to the spine which also shows a small tear at both top and bottom. The book is lovely inside, however -- very clean pages and exceptionally nice, heavy paper. The star of the show is definitely the wood engraving on page 203 by Celia Fiennes who studied the art under Noel Rooke in the 1920's. Collection of English... View more info

A Visit to Santa Claus

By: No author Stated

Price: $65.00

Publisher: Rochesterm New York, Strecher Lithographic Co.: 1917

Seller ID: 27654

Condition: Good-plus

This is a charming little book, the kind that small people are wont to "decorate" and/or relieve of its pages. Fortunately, all pages are here and there is no scribbling. The story is cute, but the art of Margaret Evans Price is the show stealer. An interesting sideline is this fact -- while being am illustrator, Evans and her husband were creating a toy company known to this day as Fisher-Price. The booklet measures 7-1/2" x 10-1/2" and has just 14 counted pages. Every other page is either in full color or in blue and orange. The booklet measures 7-1/2"x10-1/2". View more info
