Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Facsim)by Robert L May
Synopses & Reviews
In 1939, Robert L. May, at the request of his employer, Montgomery Ward & Co., wrote a holiday story about a reindeer with a shiny red nose. At Christmastime that year 2,400,000 copies of the book were distributed through Montgomery Wards stores. The rest is history. Our edition is a facsimile of the original.
For 50 Christmases the story of a lonely little reindeer with a big, bright red nose has gladdened the hearts of young and old alike. This golden anniversary edition recaptures Rudolph as he was originally conceived--the same design, the same illustrations, the same typeface--in a volume to be passed down from generation to generation.
In 1939 Robert L. May, a copywriter working at Chicago's Montgomery Ward & Co., wrote a holiday story at the request of his employer. Almost two and a half million copies of the little tale about a reindeer with a shiny red nose were given away to all the children who visited Montgomery Ward stores that year. The rest is history. Over seventy years later, the beloved classic is once again available in a hardcover faithful facsimile of the 1939 Rudolph, with original text and original Denver Gillen illustrations.
