First Christmas card designed by W. N. Egley Featured Victorian Print

First Christmas card designed by W. N. Egley

An 1842 design for a Christmas card by Mr W. N. Egley, though the general consensus is that the first was by John Calcott Horsley for Sir Henry Cole in 1846. There is some debate over whether this one was designed in 1842 or 1848. Nevertheless, a very early example, perhaps the earliest!
