An attractive item, printed on one side of a piece of paper roughly 46 x 32 cm, folded twice to make a 23 x 16 cm card. Good, on lightly aged and spotted paper. On the front is a small illustration in yellow and black, roughly 2 x 8.5 cm, showing the word 'CHRISTMAS' within a floral border. Inside the card, on the left-hand page, is Doyle's poem, of 16 lines arranged in four stanzas, the first of which reads, 'I bought a cake at Batchworth Fair | Last week, and still it's standing there | Upon the drawing-room mantel-piece, | With jars from Spain and shells from Greece.' On the facing page is a delicate illustration, 14.5 x 12.5 cm, in light red, yellow, green, blue and black, showing milling crowds at a country fair, captioned 'Decorations by Allan Gwynne-Jones'. The back of the card carries the third illustration, 5 cm square, showing children at play, as well the publications details, beginning 'THE CHRISTMAS CARDS IN THIS SERIES are designed by artists of today and the verses are composed by poets of our time.' and ending, 'It is known as NUMBER TWO in the present series'.
