The Night Before Christmas

By Moore, Clement C




"A Visit from St. Nicholas", also known as "The Night Before Christmas" and "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" from its first line, is a poem first published anonymously in 1823.

This famous poem helped to cement the image of Santa Claus from the description of his appearance, his transportation, and how he brings the gifts to children on Christmas eve.

MOORE, Clement C.

MOORE, Clement C. (RACKHAM, Arthur) THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippencott & Co., (circa 1931). 8vo. Cloth boards with Printed decorated front panel. (36) pages, plus 4 colored plates. First American edition, first issue. [Marshall, Night Before Christmas, # 298]. Rare edition. OCLC records three Philadelphia editions of later dates, but none dated so early. A colorful interpretation of Moore's classic Christmas poem illustrated by this foremost English artist of the Edwardian era - a masterful combination of whimsy and fantasy - have been used in countless reproductions including miniature books marketed as tree ornaments. Arthur Rackham illustrated this American classic towards the end of his life, and it is interesting to note that the elderly figure of the father is thought to be a self-portrait. His illustrations include a colored frontispiece and three colored text plates and many black-and-white text drawings. With personal inscription on front blank leaf dated "Christmas 1931." Very good.

The Night Before Christmas

Moore, Clement C.

London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1939. Stated at copyright: This Edition First Published 1939; an early original printing. Unique folded pictorial wrapper with protective flaps at front and back, moderate edge wear, rub. Pages very good; brief antiquarian inscription at front blank endpaper. Frontispiece color plate of an elf returning up the chimney while father looks on with candle. Illustration with Rackham's stylish imagery and whimsical imps throughout. The father of the family narrates the words just as Clement Moore wrote them, and artist Arthur Rackham captures the spirit in vibrant illustrations that reflect this memorable night. Visually he extends this favorite Christmas story for children, who will delight in watching the two mischievous stowaways from the North Pole enthusiastically exploring the sacks of gifts on the roof while St. Nick, unaware, journeys down the chimney... until the toys spill down onto the lawn and he turns with a jerk! Who's that peeking out of the sleigh? As St. Nick and reindeer descend through a brilliant night sky onto the roof of a Victorian house in a snowy New England village, the famous Christmas poem begins. A unique and beautiful edition to be cherished for years to come by all the family, especially the youngest, who find the night before Christmas perhaps the most exciting night of the year. A beautifully imagined holiday classic! Made in Great Britain. Printed by Jerrold & Sons, Ltd., Norwich. Insured post.. First Edition. Soft Cover. Good.
