Description:

First edition thus. Illustrated with seven charming colourplates by Edna Cooke Shoemaker. 4to, publisher’s original green cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine, the upper cover with a large colour pastedown also by Cooke Shoemaker, illustrated endpapers printed in green. 305 pp. A pleasing copy, internally very fresh, gilt to spine faded but green cloth fresh and bright with only minimal wear. A bit of age wear as expected. A TRUE CLASSIC OF WORLD LITERATURE and very surely, the best known and most loved work of Swiss literature within the English speaking nations. HEIDI was first published in Switzerland in 1880, but quickly earned a ranking as one of the most popular children’s novels of all time. By the time of the printing of this illustrated edition in 1925 it was considered a classic. Philadelphia artist Edna Cooke Shoemaker primarily worked as a painter and colourist of theatrical backdrops, HEIDI was one of only a handful of books she ever illustrated. In 1925 she had also been contracted to work with Grosset and Dunlap, but found the demands of publishing conflicted too greatly with her duties as a mother. Bookseller Inventory #
