Fascinating glimpse at the celebration of Christmas and Easter in 19th-century Pennsylvania. The book covers the general history of the holidays, then focuses on how women decorated their homes and delighted their families with holiday activities, such as dying eggs and crafting ornaments. Well illustrated with antique ornaments, historic photographs, and reproductions from period magazines. Includes untouched stencil sheet laid in centerfold.
Very good condition overall. Cover: some toning, discoloration. Book: light foxing, toning. Inside excellent.
