Catalogue Note

A charming watercolor illustration from one of the most beloved Christmas narratives of all time. "A Visit from St. Nicholas"—more commonly known by its first line, "'Twas the Night Before Christmas"—was first published anonymously in 1823, and in 1837 Clement Clarke Moore claimed authorship. McLoughlin Brothers Inc., a New York-based publishing firm, was active between 1858 and 1920, and became renowned for pioneering color-printing technologies in children's books.
