At the Back of the North Wind 1919 Edwardian Jessie Willcox Smith Antique Storybook Lithograph

by PetitPoulailler

Here is a beautiful Jessie Willcox Smith Edwardian lithograph gleaned from a 1919 first edition of George MacDonald's allegorical classic, "At the Back of the North Wind".

A handsome original 1919 first edition illustration from Jessie Willcox Smith features a little boy, Diamond, and his bittersweet relationship with the North Wind.

The colors remain bright and vibrant, the lithography is strong and clear and the colors are lovely and deep. The illustration is captioned -

'The collar was almost the worst part of the business'

The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, is top tipped in gold, and measures 7" x 9.375" (17.8x23.8 cm). Very little tanning is seen, the lithography is strong and clear, and the paper is smooth and clear. The corners are sharp and there are no marks, creases, folds, or tears.

A gorgeous print to frame for your new reader's room, for your little equestrian's reading nook, a gift for the new mother for the nursery, perfect for your tag and card creations ... or perhaps this will make its way into your art.

You are purchasing an original 1919 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS First Class mail.
