I would love to find a copy of the ca. 1942 edition illustrated by Everett Shinn, so far no luck in locating same. Any leads would be welcome.

Hello, I am trying to find information about a book I found at an estate sale. It is a book titled “The night before Christmas” By 141 MA Donohue & Co, Chicago. It has a Santa clause on the front facing the open folder of the book with a bag on his back..the Santa is climbing down a chimney. The book is red in color and also has holly’s on the front. There is no date of publish but holds an inscription dated 12/25/10. This book also has some short stories in the back which a couple are “Christmas Bells” and “Santa Clause”. I have been searching for the book on the internet to see if I can get some more info on the possible date of the book. It is in wonderful condition other than a small tear on a page in the back of the book.

If you may have any advice or information regarding this book it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Jamie Ranae`

Saw this copy at a recently ended auction (went for about $150):

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0509301547

It looks like a version of the 1911-ca-214-M.A.Donohue-Constance-White-Charles.J or 1911-ca-214s-M.A.Donohue-Constance-White-Charles.J at visitfromstnicholas.com

One obvious difference from the cover is text "MOUNTED ON LINEN". The other two have nothing and just the word "LINEN", respectively, in this location.

Here is a direct link to the cover: Image

So anyone seen the movie "The Nightmare Before Christmas"? I love it, and it's really good movie for kids and adults too! :)

I found this one on the calendar...


'Twas the Night before Christmas... not a creature was stirring despite the young girl's desire to wait up for Santa Claus. She couldn't have been asleep too long since the fire is still blazing in the hearth. Sleep tight, Santa whispers.
