Description:

"The Ideal Child is the Legacy Left Us By This Remarkable Artist" First Issue, In the Scarce First Issue Box [SMITH, Jessie Willcox, illustrator]. The Jessie Willcox Smith Mother Goose. A Careful and Full Selection of the Rhymes. With Numerous Illustrations In full color and black and white by. New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, [1914]. First edition, first issue (with pictorial peach endpapers with white geese and babies in mob-caps). Oblong quarto (8 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches; 215 x 299 mm.). [2] blank; 173; [3] blank pp. Twelve full-page color plates, five full-page monotone plates, and numerous line drawings throughout the text. Original black cloth, spine lettered in white, pictorial label on front cover with an additional color plate of mother Goose in straw bonnet sheltering two children under her wings. A very fine copy in the original first-issue pictorial box (with "Net $2.50") with the original glassine (fragmented) wrapper. This is the first time that we have seen a first issue in the original pictorial box (neatly repaired at corners); it has become a vanishingly scarce occasion when both are found together. "The ideal child is the legacy left us by this remarkable artist" (Michael S. Schnessel, Jessie Wilcox Smith). Illustrating over forty books during her career, Jessie Wilcox Smith (1863-1935), was born in Philadelphia and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She later studied with Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute of Arts and Sciences. "By 1905, her clients now included Century, Collier's Weekly, Leslie's, Harper's, McClure's, Scribners, and [The] Ladies' Home Journal. "As the book and magazine commissions continued, the focus of her work began to gel. Children became more and more the subject, whether it was expose articles like 'While the Mother Works: A Look at the Day Nurseries of New York' (Century, 1902), books like the Scribners Classic edition of A Child's Garden of Verses (1905), or just a series of plates like 'The Seven Ages of Childhood' done for seven successive issues of The Ladies' Home Journal in 1908-9. Though she never married nor had children of her own, they became the center of her life and work. "It was on the covers of Good Housekeeping that most people became familiar with her art. Month after month, from December of 1917 through March of 1933, a new Jessie Willcox Smith image was on the newsstands and in countless homes. She painted the universal child, but the dresses and play suits they wore helped shape the dressing habits of a generation of children". Old Mother Goose, When she wanted to wander, Would ride through the air On a very fine gander. Jack's mother came in, And caught the goose soon, And mounting its back, Flew up to the moon. Nudelman, A39. Bookseller Inventory #
