Signed by Gardner on the title page. Very scarce signed. "The Night Before Christmas" poem written by Clement Clarke Moore in 1822 has contributed broadly to the myth, tradition, and cult-like following of Santa Claus; here, Gardner carefully gathers an important and bizarre set of specimens inspired by the poem, adding to his groundbreaking series of annotated works.
