An attractive first edition of Virginia Woolf's seventh and most experimental novel, a polyphonic work featuring six characters plus another present only in absentia, all perceived by many to be drawn to a varying degree from people the author knew, including E.M. Forster, T.S. Eliot, Vanessa Bell and Lytton Strachey. The dust-jacket is designed by the author's sister Vanessa Bell, very much in keeping stylistically with her other work for Leonard & Virginia Woolf's Hogarth Press publications.,

First edition, first printing; 8vo (192 x 132 mm); some very light spotting to preliminary and terminal leaves, otherwise internally very good: publisher's purple cloth gilt, head and foot of spine dust-soiled, original dust-jacket designed by Vanessa Bell, spine toned and chipped with some loss to extremities (touching top of title), panels lightly dust-soiled, otherwise a good, unsophisticated example.
