ELEANOR ROOSEVELT’S CHRISTMAS STORY FOR CHILDREN, FIRST EDITION

ROOSEVELT, Eleanor. Christmas. A Story. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1940. Square 12mo, original pictorial boards, original dust jacket.

First edition, illustrated by Fritz Kredel, in scarce original dust jacket.

This Christmas story for children by the First Lady relates the tale of a special Christmas Eve in a war-torn land. “The times are so serious,” Mrs. Roosevelt writes in her preface, “that even children should be made to understand that there are vital differences in people’s beliefs which lead to differences in behavior.”

A fine copy.
