"A well-executed, faithful reproduction of Denslow's original 1902 publication. The artwork is sharp, the text is crisp, and there is none of the fuzzy or muddled nature that sometimes occurs when reproducing texts from before the time of digital files." — Prince William Public Library System
Nearly 200 years ago a distinguished professor of classics wrote a charming holiday poem to amuse his children. "A Visit from St. Nicholas" traveled from Clement C. Moore's family circle into the hearts of people around the world. Today it is best known by its opening line, "’Twas the night before Christmas . . ."
This beautiful gift edition features an interpretation of the Yuletide classic by W. W. Denslow, the original illustrator of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz books. Denslow's bright and expressive full-color illustrations add a whole new dimension to the familiar tale. This vivid new version was reproduced from the 1902 first edition.

Author Biography

Clement Clarke Moore (1779–1863) was American Professor of Oriental and Greek Literature at a New York City seminary where he also served as a Professor of Divinity and Biblical Learning. His immortal poem, originally titled "A Visit from St. Nicholas," set the template for today's vision of Santa Claus, from the white beard to the eight reindeer.
W. W. Denslow (1856–1915) is famous as the original illustrator of L. Frank Baum's many stories from the land of Oz. Denslow recognized that his work appealed to a young audience and his aim was to make children's books filled with "good, clean, wholesome fun."
