"I AM CALLING THESE SERIES OF POSTS "THE FIVE DAYS BEFORE THANKSGIVING", TO GIVE YOU ALL AN IDEA OF THE SCOPE OF J.C. LEYENDECKER COVERS. NO DETAILED ANALYSIS, JUST LOADS OF FUN ENJOYING THE IMAGES.

1&2: AMAZINGLY, LEYENDECKER HAD TWO COVERS FOR THANKSGIVING 1910. BOTH SHOW WHAT I WOULD CALL LEYENDECKER LEITMOTIFS: THE STARVING PURITAN CHILD DEVOURING A TURKEY WHILE SURROUNDED BY HOSTILE INDIANS (THE ARROWS), AND THE GUN-AND-BIBLE PURITAN ACCOMPANYING A RARE LEYENDECKER FEMALE.

3. FROM 1912: A CHILD OBSERVING HIS MOTHER BASTE THE TURKEY.

4. FROM 1913: AT TIMES LEYENDECKER SWITCHED FROM THE TURKEY THEME TO THE HARVEST BOUNTY, REPRESENTED BY THE EMBLEMATIC THANKSGIVING (AND HALLOWEEN) FRUIT, THE PUMPKIN.

NOTE: I WILL BUY DAMAGED COVERS IF THEY ARE NOT UTTERLY UNFIT FOR DISPLAY. I USUALLY UPGRADE IF I FIND ANOTHER OF THE SAME IN GOOD CONDITION.
