"FEAR NOTHING: I BRING GOOD NEWS OF GREAT JOY TO YOU AND ALL MANKIND" Lovely Advent Calendar, rare in this condition, a collaboration between Dorothy Sayers and Fritz Wegner. Dorothy Sayers' recounting of the Nativity story prefaces Wegner's charming painting. “THE PICTURE inside has twenty-seven numbered doors for you to open as the story goes along. You can start on the Fourteenth of December and open one door every day until the Seventh of January. If you start earlier or later than this, remember that the Stable Door (Door 12) is the one that opens on CHRISTMAS DAY” This copy signed by Fritz Wegner at the bottom of the front wrapper. Reprinted with the same title in 1960 as a book in a smaller format. [This Calendar can be framed in a shadow box for annual display during Advent. Contact us for details.].
