The Father Christmas Letters - J. R. R. Tolkien, Baillie Tolkien.

HB 1976, 48 pages. Colour illustrations. School stamp and sellotape marks first inside page, other wise good condition. Happy to combine postage.

A collection of illustrated letters from Father Christmas recapping the activities of the preceding year at the North Pole. The letters were written by the author to his children.

Every December and envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole would arrive for J.R.R. Tolkien’s children.

Inside would be a letter in strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful coloured drawing or some sketches.
The letters were from Father Christmas.

They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how all the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas’s house into the dining-room; how he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden; how there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house!

Sometimes Polar Bear would scrawl a note, and sometimes Ilbereth the Elf would write in his elegant flowing script.
Many of these enchanting letters and drawings are gathered into this book.
