In the lead-up to Christmas we are showcasing some of the festive items in our collection across our social networks. Behind the door of our virtual advent calendar today is…
The Postman’s Christmas Verse for 1854
Sixteen stanzas of verse of four line rhyming couplets bounded by decorative border.
Purchased with assistance from the V&A Purchase fund.
See a larger version of this and all the other items in our Virtual Advent Calendar on Flickr.
UPDATE: Photographer Joshiah Robinson, currently snowed-in, has restored the Postman’s Christmas Verse for us. See it on Flickr.
