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.

Description

First edition, first printing; 8vo; a little light spotting to the terminal leaves, otherwise internally very good; publisher's purple cloth, minor darkening to spine, a little sunned at top edge and spine ends, otherwise a very good, sharp copy, in the original Vanessa Bell dust-jacket with 7/6 to spine, chipped at corners and spine ends with slight loss, 2 small closed splits to spine near middle, some toning, more so to spine, which is also slightly mottled, rubbed at fore-edges but overall a good, unsophisticated example.
