by Augustus Trembling
The Original Christmas Present is the first in a series of trivia books, presented in a novel way. With over 300 pages of facts, pictures and 200 questions, this book offers a wealth of details on the original Christmas presents – gold, frankincense and myrrh – their unique qualities, their history, their past and present uses. Augustus brings us a book packed with knowledge about these three ancient commodities, which had been traded thousands of years before they became part of biblical lore, thus kickstarting the custom of bestowing gifts at Christmas and the phenomenon of global 'Santanomics'.
What a present this would make! So good to get my copy.
