About This Book
The story of the “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus” story. The letter Virginia wrote to The Sun and the response she got. At the back find photos and short bios on Virginia, her father, Philip P. O’Hanlon, and Francis Pharcellus Church, the author of the editorial, and a Thomas Nast image of Santa in vogue at that time. This was illustrated by Suzanne Hausman and published by Readers’ Digest Services with 1972 copyright, perhaps the third printing in 1977 (hard to know how the string of numbers are to be interpreted). This paperback book measures about 7-1/8″ x 9-1/4″ and has 32 internal pages.

See photo. In very good condition for age with bung at top right as shown. The pages are toning naturally from age but are tight in the binding. No names or other markings. Stores in and ships from clean, smoke-free home.

Generally sent the same day payment arrives. Unless you request otherwise, I will wrap the book in plastic wrap to help protect it from the elements, tightly sandwich it between pieces of cardboard, then wrap in brown paper to send via Media Mail with Delivery Confirmation tracking. See the shipping page for the cost to send a one-pound Media Mail package. Insurance is an additional cost as described. I am delighted to combine postage and insurance costs if you purchase more than one item. The second item may travel for free or just a few cents more — so it’s worth taking a look at my other items before you complete your order.
