Jolly Santa Claus Vintage Children's Christmas Book For Sale
This old children’s book has “Jolly Santa Claus Chicago, M.A. Donohue Co.” on the cover. The only color illustration has a thin spot (though not a hole) on the back side that makes the picture translucent in that area. Horrible children’s stories: In “Wily Wolves” 7 baby wolves ‘were all taken and destroyed’. In “Tommy’s Wishes” he says ‘I wish that whippings made me gay and happy, and would never hurt’. In “Medicine for Monkeys” the physic given to them to keep them out of mulberry trees causes them ‘agonies of sickness’. There are 2 stories about slave boys. There is an illustration of a performing bear. Not a very jolly entertainment for children.
