St. Nick and eight tiny reindeer descend through a brilliant night sky, and so the famous Christmas poem begins.

As St. Nick goes to work, he doesn't realize there are two stowaways from the North Pole exploring the sacks of gifts on the roof! A unique and beautiful edition, which all the family will cherish for years to come.
Clement Clarke Moore was born in New York City and attended Columbia College, graduating at the top of his class in 1798. While he authored various works, his most beloved is the poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas," better known as "The Night Before Christmas," written in 1822 for his nine children. Moore taught Greek and oriental literature at the General Theological Society from 1823 until he retired in 1850. He died in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1863.
