About This Item

When Tolkien's eldest son, John, was three years old in 1920 the first of The Father Christmas Letters arrived and continued to do so for over twenty years - full of news from the North Pole and decorated with paintings and sketches. No page numbers but 48 pages with 10 full page colour illustrations and more colour and black and white illustrations in the text. Book in near fine condition


The Father Christmas Letters is a collection of letters written and illustrated by J. R. R. Tolkien between 1920 and 1942 for his children, from "Father Christmas". They tell of the adventures and misadventures of Father Christmas and his helpers, including the North Polar Bear and his two sidekick cubs, Paksu and Valkotukka.
