Fantastic vintage children's holiday book, vibrantly illustrated by E.A. Bradford with five pop-up dioramas in carousel fashion. It is packed with delightful imagery, each scene a dramatic peek into Santa's Christmas activities. This is a very fun vintage 3D book!

Phillips Publishers, Inc., 1950. First Edition. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Bradford, E. A. (illustrator). Louise Dyer Harris, Editor. Pictorial hardback with red spine. Classic carousel book forming five colorful pop-up dioramas when fully opened with front and back covers touching. All pages and pop-ups in excellent working condition. Bright, clean and crisp color litho throughout. Slight edge wear and corners bumped, otherwise a crisp, clean copy. A couple of light scratches on the back cover.

This wonderful vintage children's holiday Christmas book is packed with fantastic imagery and colorful content, each scene a dramatic peek into Santa's Christmas activities. In the lower left corner of each diorama, a little boy and girl with their teddy bear watch each scene with wonder. Please see all of the detail photos; you will fall in love with this book! The opening diorama shows Santa's Castle on a snowy evening, with elves at work and woodland creatures bearing witness. It has a small tear on the upper left and a gift inscription with date. The second diorama is perfect, depicting Santa's Workshop, an exuberant scene of toy making activity and bright color. Diorama three is St. Nick and His Reindeer, showing Santa and his sleigh being pulled by his eight reindeer over the rooftops of the sleeping town. It has a small tear on the upper left. The fourth diorama is perfect and is titled St. Nick's Visit, with Santa inside a home putting toys under the tree. The last scene is Tired Santa Back Home and shows Santa snoozing in his big chair with his cat on his lap. There is one small taped tear on the upper right.

There is a metal clasp that holds the covers together when fully opened to reveal the carousel, which makes a star shape. It makes a great display in the open position during the holidays! This is a very special vintage 1950 children's Christmas book and it is so much fun!
