Jolly St. Nick, eager children, holly boughs and plum pudding: the pleasures of an old-fashioned Christmas, in the spirit of love and sharing, sparkle in this book. This opulent volume, by the authors of A Victorian Scrapbook, celebrates the classic holiday traditions dearest to the Victorian heart--and to our own a century later. Each lushly layered page mixes antique greeting cards, children's books, paper toys and games, and other images from one of America's finest private collections of antique paper ephemera, with rich brocade, velvet, rare ornaments and colletibles. Accompanying text recounts the lore, legends, myths and manners of the Victorian Day of Days.
