Christmas Carols. Illustrated by Vee Guthrie. Illustrated Edition. Peter Pauper Press. Mount Vernon, 1952.

$25.00

Christmas carols have been sung for centuries, but the tradition of caroling on Christmas night–i.e., singing classic Christmas songs in outdoor public spaces–was an invention of the Victorian period in England. This period also established many of the songs we most associate with Christmas today. In this slim pocket book, the Peter Pauper Press provides wonderfully illustrated pages with music and lyrics for the best Christmas songs. Some of its carols include “Silent Night”, “O Come, All Ye Faithful”, “The First Nowel”, “Hark! The Herald Angel Sings”, and several others. This volume is clearly designed to be used, encouraging the beloved Christmas tradition into the twentieth century.

This illustrated edition is in very good condition. In the original spiral bound wrappers, fine. Text block fine. Former owner’s gift inscription on the inside front wrapper. With the original box, good with creases, chipping, tears, and tape to inside.

A very good caroler’s pocket book of classic Christmas songs.
