Nearly 200 years ago a distinguished professor of classics wrote a charming holiday poem to amuse his children. "A Visit from St. Nicholas" traveled from Clement C. Moore's family circle into the hearts of people around the world. Today it is best known by its opening line, "’Twas the night before Christmas . . ."
This beautiful gift edition features an interpretation of the Yuletide classic by W. W. Denslow, the original illustrator of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz
books. Denslow's bright and expressive full-color illustrations add a whole new dimension to the familiar tale. This vivid new version was reproduced from the 1902 first edition.
