CONDITION: Very Good; 1913 gift inscription, boards bright and clean, cover plate perfect, spine cloth very slightly faded with 4 pinprick holes thus grade (hard to see in jpg), light bumps to some extremities, others sharp; interior extremely clean and solid with flat endpapers and pages. Juvenile hardback Von Hofsten's illustrations show the old-fashioned tiny Santa, who fits the chimney well. The title poem is laid out on four pages; most of the other poems, of varying length, are Christmas poems. Definitely the later Pleasant Hour version. The book was given to Ruth Van Doren; laid in is her charming 3rd grade handwritten assignment on The Oyster, in careful cursive written with a straight pen in ink, and also her stencil of an apple, this in Fine condition.
