Christmas – Eleanor Roosevelt (first edition)

Perhaps the first words that come to mind when you think of Eleanor Roosevelt are First Lady or wife of  Franklin D. You may also think (or remember) that she served as founding member of the United Nations and was the architect of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. In addition to those roles, she also wrote a daily newspaper column for twenty-six years, a monthly magazine column for Woman’s Home Companion, and a series of many other articles and books, It suffices to say that writing was one of her primary professions. But children’s writer? Children’s writer indeed! For offer here is a first edition copy of Eleanor Roosevelt’s, “Christmas”. A beautiful copy complete with dust jacket (stated first edition Knopf 1940).
