Christmas Compendium

Featuring over 50 original documents held by the Archive Service, this full-colour fully-illustrated booklet reflects the celebration of Christmas from medieval times up to the mid-twentieth century. From a thirteenth century grant requiring a gift of gloves at Christmas to twentieth century product advertising, a list of seasonal fare from 1579 to a list of ingredients for a 1930s Christmas Cake, and from Georgian letters of season’s greetings to a colourful variety of Victorian Christmas Cards, this 40-page A5 booklet brings the Christmases of our ancestors back to life. At a handy A5 size, it also makes an ideal gift to send by post or to tuck under the Christmas Tree for friends and family.
