The Water Babies

WILLCOX SMITH, Jessie / KINGSLEY, Charles

WILLCOX SMITH, Jessie The Water Babies

Boots, 1929.

Illustrated gift edition. 4to. Original green cloth with gilt lettering and decoration on the upper cover and spine. Twelve full page colour illustrations by Jessie Willcox Smith, all with tissue guards. A very good copy, book plate to the front free endpaper.

The work of American artist Jessie Willcox Smith is extremely collectable. Her fame as an illustrator caused parents to seek her out for portraits of children for which she was also known. Her sensitiveness to children, their moods, expressions, and body language is obvious in each image. It remains an extraordinary achievement for one who was never a parent.
