Another turn of the century ABC book which looks very much like a modern comic book. Primers and spellers and the like don't get their proper due in the history of comics.
Terrific artwork, though the "X-mas" baby looks a little old for the part. Interesting to see "X-mas" being used here, given the controversy associated nowadays with the abbreviation!
