THESE ARE THE EARLIEST LEYENDECKER XMAS COVERS I OWN:

1. 1901. VERY MUCH STILL UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF MUCHA'S ART NOUVEAU STYLE., IT MATCHES THE ILLUSTRATIONS FOR THE 1901 "A XMAS HYMN", WHICH I HAVE POSTED PREVIOUSLY.

DEC. 2, 1905. DUE TO IT'S CLOSENESS TO THANKSGIVING, THIS ICONIC IMAGE STRADDLES TWO HOLIDAYS.

DEC. 26, 1905. FRANKLY MAWKISH KITSCH: A BOY COURTING A GIRL UNDER A MISTLETOES.

1909: LAST MINUTE SHOPPING, OR XMAS THE AMERICASN WAY!

    Great collection, Al. I'm amazed with how many covers Leyendecker illustrated. Do you know how many he did by chance? (enough to collect, obviously!)
