About this Item: Gotha: Friedrich Andreas Perthes, 1880-81, 1880. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth decorated in black and lettered in gilt, marbled edges, white glossy endpapers, volume II with decorative endpapers, marbled edges. Housed in a custom red quarter morocco slipcase and red cloth chemise. Vol I: spine faded, recased with ?new endpapers, a couple of spots to contents; vol. II: contemporary ownership inscription in ink on title-page. A little colour restoration to head of spine, hinges partly cracked but holding. An excellent set. First editions of both parts in the original German. Throughout the 1870s Johanna Spyri (1827–1901) published stories for adults and children based around her reminiscences of growing up in rural Switzerland. But huge success came with the publication of Heidi, the most important Swiss contribution to children's literature after the "Swiss Family Robinson" of J. R. Wyss. As usual with Christmas books, the first book was published in December 1879 but dated the following year. Spyri wrote the novel in just four weeks. It was first published anonymously in German, and quickly became an international best-seller and has been translated into 50 languages (English in 1885 by Charles Tritten who later published the continuations "Heidi Grows Up" and "Heidi's Children"), sold 50 million copies, and inspired a whole series of films. Volume I was issued without the author's name on the title page but "Von der Verfasserin von 'Ein Blatt auf Vrony's Grab'" ("From the author of."); volume II is titled "Heidi kann gebrauchen, was es gelernt hat" and was published as part V of "Geschichten für Kinder und auch für Solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben", this time under Spyri's name. Perhaps because of the fragile paper used, the first editions of the two parts of Heidi are scarce. Doderer III, 447; Hürlimann 310; Seebass II, 1930 ("rare", vol. 2 only); Wegehaupt III, 3633 (vol. 2 only); Weilenmann 3216 & 3233. Seller Inventory # 120814

Philadelphia: David McKay Company, 1922. First Jessie Willcox Smith illustrated edition, first issue.

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."
