Item Description: Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1922., 1922. Jessie Willcox Smith's Last Major Children's Story[SMITH, Jessie Willcox, illustrator]. SPYRI, Johanna. Heidi. Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1922. First Jessie Willcox Smith illustrated edition, first issue. Quarto (9 1/4 x 7 inches; 236 x 178 mm.). 380 pp. Color pictorial title-page, ten full-page color plates and twenty-three full-page plates in text printed in red and black.Publishers blue cloth, front cover with pasted-on illustration, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, color pictorial endpapers. With the original color pictorial dust jacket. Dust jacket with 1/4 chips at top of spine, 3/4 inch chip at foot and some additional chipping on edges. A near fine copy of the book in a good dust jacket."Heidi, written by Johanna Spyri, was issued by the proven publishers of David McKay, in Philadelphia. It contained ten full-page color plates, a color pictorial wrapper, a color insert on the cover, pictorial end-papers, and colored line drawings throughout the book. This was again a fine production, typical of David McKay, and was a perfect showcase for Smith's illustrative art. The book represents the last major children's story in which Smith specifically designed illustrations. Fourteen separate books would follow until Smith's death in 1935, but all of these were either composites of illustrations from previous Good Housekeeping covers, or they represented relatively minor contributions of only a few illustrations. Smith's paintings for Heidi are quite unique in their use of coloration, with many shades of purple, green, and orange, giving an ethereal effect. One such illustration shows Heidi introducing various goats to her friend Clara and has a very Maxfield Parrish-like quality, especially seen in the bright orange and violet colored mountains in the background." (Edward Nudelman. Jessie Willcox Smith, American Illustrator, p. 42).Nudelman, A58. Bookseller Inventory # 02975
