Heidi illustrated by Jessie Willcox Smith

Jessie Willcox Smith (September 6, 1863 – May 3, 1935) was one of the most prominent female illustrators in the United States during the Golden Age of American illustration. She was a prolific contributor to respected books and magazines during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. She illustrated stories and articles for clients such as Century, Collier's, Leslie's Weekly, Harper's, McClure's, Scribners, and the Ladies' Home Journal. She had an ongoing relationship with Good Housekeeping, including the long-running Mother Goose series of illustrations and creating all the covers from 1915 to 1933. Among the more than 60 books that Smith illustrated were Louisa May Alcott's Little Women and An Old-Fashioned Girl, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's Evangeline, and Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses.

 The McKay Edition was published in 1922.

 Out with the goats


 The Visit to Grandmother

Two visits and what came of them
 A new Chapter about new things
Fräulein Rottenmeier spends an uncomfortable day
There is great commotion in the large house
Herr Sesemann hears of things which are new to him
Another Grandmother
Heidi gains  in one way and loses in another
A ghost in the house
A summer evening on the mountain
Sunday bells

Preparation for a journey
A visitor
A compensation
Winter in Dörfli
The winter continues
News from distant friends
How life went on at Grandfather's
Something unexpected happens

"Goodbye till we meet again"
