Father Christmas by Raymond Briggs 1st / 1st 1973


First UK edition and first print published by Hamish Hamilton in 1973. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper has some wear to the top of the spine otherwise is in very nice order. There are no marks and it is very clean. It has been price clipped. The book has very little handling wear with straight corners and edges. There is no previous owners ink. Overall a near fine copy. 


Briggs won the annual Kate Greenaway Medal from the Library Association for Father Christmas, recognising the year's best children's book illustration by a British subject. For the 50th anniversary of the Medal (1955–2005), a panel named it one of the top ten winning works, which composed the ballot for a public election of the nation's favourite.
