This beautifully illustrated Christmas book for children is A Child's Story Of The Nativity by Louise Raymond, illustrated by Masha. It was published in 1943 by Random House. The hardcover book is 9-1/2 by 12-1/4 inches. Each of the 36 pages is illustrated, either with a black and white spot illustration or a full page pastel colored image with gold borders and outlining. There are 14 full page illustrations and two larger scenes that take up both facing pages.
There are no tears or stains. The only writing is a gift inscription on the front endpapers. The back endpapers have a partial split to the pastedown only along the spine. There are bumps to all four corners and wear to the cloth covered spine ends.
