New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1942.
Hard Cover. First Edition. A theme appropriate of to the patriotic spirit of the World War II years -- how Saint Nicholas ?made the jump across the ocean, and how, once over here, he got all mixed up with Christmas until he became our own jolly, round, red, American Santa Claus?. By the husband and wife team, Caroline Singer and her illustrator husband Cyrus Baldridge. A clean and tight First Edition copy with no marks of any kind; the paper-covered have some minor rubbing to the bottom edge. The dustjacket shelfwear with a couple of short closed tears and very small amount of loss to the top of the spine. It is bright and has not been price-clipped; it is now protected with a new mylar cover.
Near Fine binding / Very Good dust jacket.
