It Came Upon The Midnight Clear

Miniature is 1 1/2 x 2 3/16", micro-miniature is 3/4" x 1 1/8"
40 pages, 10 illustrations

"Still through the cloven skies they come, with peaceful wings unfurled,
And still their heavenly music floats o'er all the weary world"

One of the most beautiful of all Christmas carols, the original poem was written by Edmund Hamilton Sears, a Unitarian minister, in 1849. The illustrations depict a desert landscape at night, and the angels' presence is subtly suggested by a lone feather dropping through the clear sky, backlit by a star.

The book is bound in paper printed with colorful feathers, and has a paper title on the front, and decorative endpapers.
