    Decorative Wrappers. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Illustrations. In this little pamphlet the author describes the origin of "Plygain (or Plygen)", the three Masses of Christmas, which are believed to be as old as the Celtic Church that took refuge in the Welsh hills. "This singing of the Plygain continued until the Protestant Reformation, when the reformers took over the term and applied it to an all-night sing on Christmas Eve". The author describes Christmas traditions in Wales such as the "Hodening Horse"; the singing of Christmas carols from house to house; the New Year's Day celebration of "Dydd Calan"; etc.

    Decorative Wrappers. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Illustrations. The author relates some of the superstitions, traditions and stories surrounding the celebration of Christmas in Germany. Walking through the winter corn on Christmas Eve is profitable; you will hear all that is going to happen in the village during the next twelve months. If you fail to eat beans on Christmas Day, you will become an ass. He recounts the story of the writing of the Christmas carol "Stille Nacht, Beilige Nacht" ("Silent Night, Holy Night"), and the Christmas carol attributed to Martin Luther, "Luther's Cradle Hymn" ("Away in a Manger").

Valentine & Sons became a leading manufacturer of postcards in both Scotland and abroad when it ventured into the industry during the 1890s. After James's passing, the company was run by his two sons, William Dobson Valentine (1844-1907) and George Valentine (1852-1890). The company continued to operate until 1963 when it was sold to John Waddington, Limited. John Waddington then sold the business to Hallmark Cards in 1980.

Bathing in the hot springs of Noboribetsu cured her of her ailment. Kinzo proceeded to build an inn, Yumoto Takimoto (Takimoto Hot Spring), to make a business promoting the springs and their healing properties in 1888. The inn became a "sento," or communal bathhouse, in 1898. After Kinzo's passing, the inn stayed under family ownership until 1913 when all property rights of the Takimoto family were transferred to the Kuribayashi Company (Hot Spring Division). The inn underwent a number of expansions and renovations over the years. Yumoto Takimoto became Dai-ichi Takimotokan in 1953 and is notably the oldest hot spring resort still open to this day.

Les Invalides is a complex of buildings that were originally constructed for older soldiers and soldiers who were unwell. The project began in 1670 under orders of King Louis XIV. The original Les Invalides comprised a home and hospital for the war veterans which are still part of the complex in some form to this day. Additional buildings and structures, such as museums and monuments, have since been added to Les Invalides, all of which relate to French military history.
