Unpaginated (approx. 32 pp.), 4to (11 1/4" H). INSCRIBED ON HALF-TITLE PAGE BY THE ILLUSTRATOR. Colour illustrations with pictorial border in blue & white. The English translation of a beautiful Christmas carol written by Jesuit missionary, Father Jean de Brebeuf (1593-1649) to help explain the Nativity to the Huron Indians he worked among for twenty-two years. This wonderfully illustrated edition provides the music (including one verse in the old Huron language and two verses in 18th century French) and a background of the carol. I have loved this carol since a child at which time I was fascinated with the concept of mighty Gitchi Manitou (God) sending angel choirs because it was winter and all the birds were gone, and the great chiefs (wise men) bringing 'gifts of fox and beaver pelt'. Tiny scuff on bottom edge of boards. Dust jacket has minor wrinkling along top edge.
