Description: Artist: LOUIS J. RHEAD (1858-1926) Size: 13 x 19 1/4 in./33 x 49 cm Throughout Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries, it would not be uncommon for the ultra-wealthy to feast upon peacock at Christmas and other special events. That archaic tradition is referenced in this elegant poster by Rhead promoting The Century's Christmas number, featuring "poems and pictures, 25 full-page illustrations, Rudyard Kipling's first American story [and] the new life of Napoleon." This is the smaller format version of the design. (xmas)
Condition Report: A-/ Slight tears at edges.
Dimensions: 13 x 19 1/4 in./33 x 49 cm
