A stunning Collectors' edition by Simon & Schuster, a Very Fine first edition, first printing bound in green leather with original wrap-around band, all edges gilt, SIGNED by former U. S. President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Jimmy Carter. Rather scarce.

In a beautifully rendered portrait, Jimmy Carter remembers the Christmas days of his Plains boyhood -- the simplicity of family and community gift-giving, his father's eggnog, the children's house decorations, the school Nativity pageant, the fireworks, Luke's story of the birth of Christ, and the poignancy of his black neighbors' poverty.
