Many years ago we published an illustrated alphabet book using a rhyme by Carolyn Wells. It has sold well every Christmas since that first publication but recently Welleran Poltarnees - our master of illustration reviewed his work and decided that, with our amplified resources and improvements in the art of color scanning and printing, he could do a better job. We told him to go ahead, and here we present his new version, and at a reduced retail price that we think will make it even more saleable. Some of the Christmas themes depicted are: bells, gifts, stars, ice, holly, wreaths, and reindeer. Artists include Willy Pogany, H.C. Leyendecker, Palmer Cox, Maginel Wright Barney, James Montgomery Flagg and Frances Tipton Hunter.
