Victorian period Santa Claus engravings, detailed, quirky and humorous.
Thomas Nast (1840 - 1902) created the image of Santa Claus which caught the public imagination in the Nineteenth Century and is still generally used today. An originator of the Santa theme Nast's images are packed with the scenes that have come to typify Christmas, from Santa on the sleigh, at the chimney top, with children and presents, with characters from nursery rhymes, children plotting his route from the North Pole, with a stack of letters from naughty children, in winter scenes. This book is a republication of Nast`s 'Christmas drawings for the Human Race' (1890).
Drawn with great care and detail, these are the classic evocative Victorian depictions of Christmas, filled with detail. Illustrations:
