FESTIVAL OF CHRISTMAS

(London: Lund, Humphries and Co., [1921]).

Scarce, the first entry in a series of five and the most elusive of the series as well. It is also a very nice pairing of George Wither’s lovely Holiday poem with the design and illustrations of Claud Lovat Fraser. It is printed as a Christmas card in fours but is quite large, the tipped in plate measuring over seven and a half inches tall. A very attractive piece of holiday ephemera and a fine example of Lovat Fraser’s exquisite art work. Item #16100

This is number one in a series of five festival cards by ‘modern artist’. Designed by Claud Lovat Fraser and illustrated by him with hand-coloured decorations on the upper and lower covers, also with a large tipped in hand-coloured plate of three festive merrymakers . Single Folio in fours, unbound as issued printed on heavy stock paper of high quality, edges untrimmed. One Sheet folded in fours. Very fine, remarkably so for such a delicate item.

Price: $95.00
