Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

For the many many fans of Victorian cloth bindings that surely must be out there, here is a Christmas book from 1874, printed and bound in Maine: The Christmas Tree and Other Poems by F.M. Ray. Simple blindstamped rules, and a gilt candlelit tree device on the front cover. I'm thankfully too busy at the shop today to write more than this: Merry Christmas, dear readers.

Merry Christmas to you, Sarah.

Beautiful book! I was surprised to see Xmas, thinking that was of more recent usage.
