Description:

"There Was Once A Little Princess Who?"[SMITH, Jessie Willcox, illustrator]. MacDonald, George. The Princess and the Goblin. Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1920. First Jessie Willcox Smith illustrated edition (binding B). Quarto (9 3/8 x 6 15/16 inches; 238 x 175 mm.). 203, [1 blank] pp. Color pictorial title-page and eight full-page color plates. Publishers beige linen cloth, front cover bordered and lettered in blue and with an additional color illustration pasted on, spine decoratively lettered in blue, top edge gilt, color pictorial end-papers. Neat ink inscription on front blank. A fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket.Eight-year-old Princess Irene lives a lonely life in a castle in a wild, desolate, mountainous kingdom, with only her nursemaid, "Lootie" for company. Her father the king is normally absent attending to affairs of state, and her mother is dead. Irene has never known about the existence of the goblins which lurk in the underground mines but her nursemaid Lootie does know about them. These goblins are grotesque and hideous beings, who centuries ago were human, but due to various reasons, they were driven underground and became malformed and distorted by their new lifestyle. This caused them to despise the humans above the ground and vow revenge against them."Smith's illustrations for George MacDonald's At the Back of the North Wind (1919) and The Princess and the Goblin (1920) were extremely imaginative and full of vitality. One such example, pictured in The Princess and the Goblin, shows a host of goblins surrounding the young boy, Curdie, who is reciting a rhyme which is supposed to ward off the threatening foes. Smith uses the boy's own shadow to give a foreboding impression, adding a special tension and excitement to the composition."Nudelman, A55.1 (Binding B). Bookseller Inventory #
