About this deal

The bloodthirsty biographies of the world’s most infamous pirates are reproduced in this Folio edition of Captain Charles Johnson’s renowned work, including original woodcut illustrations and a fascinating introduction by Margarette Lincoln. Moore, the poem perfectly captures the anticipation and wonder of Christmas Eve, and it shaped our image of the festive season, including the idea of St. Moore had a reputation as an erudite professor and had not wished at first to be connected with the unscholarly verse.

It was such a pleasure to meet you both, and I really appreciated how smoothly and professionally you ran everything. If you are looking for a version of the classic Clement Clarke Moore seasonal poem this year then I’d wholeheartedly recommend this superbly designed one first published in 1954. Indeed, Moore embedded many of the traditional ideas surrounding Christmas Eve that we keep today, and a rendition of his poem has itself become a festive fixture in households all over the world. Most of the colourful images are vivid and bright and do an excellent job of telling the tale of Santa Claus, his reindeer and sleigh visiting houses to deliver his presents to the children of the world. As a result, "New Yorkers embraced Moore's child-centered version of Christmas as if they had been doing it all their lives.

And to think, if a family friend hadn’t sent Moore’s poem for consideration to the New York Sentinel 200 years ago, we might be celebrating a different set of festive traditions today.

Foster's claim, however, has been countered by document dealer and historian Seth Kaller, who once owned one of Moore's original manuscripts of the poem. and rewrote and replaced many others such as "the prancing and pawing of each little hoof" with "the clattering noise of each galloping hoof"), by the American composer Ken Darby (1909–1992), [24] [25] whose version was recorded by Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians three separate times; in 1942, [26] [27] 1955, [28] and 1963. It’s already been around for 200 years and will be around for years and decades to come as it is a tale that never gets old. By that time, the original publisher and at least seven others had already acknowledged his authorship.
