What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding
The first edition, first impression.
Lacking the Vanessa Bell dust wrapper.
Virginia Woolf's influential essay 'A Room of One's Own, exploring the social and economic injustices faced by women in society.
First published in September 1929, this essay is reworked from two lectures Woolf delivered at Cambridge University.
Written by the Bloomsbury author Virginia Woolf, a central figure of the literary group, herself known for her experimental writings and affair with fellow author Vita Sackville-West.
Published by the Hogarth Press, the Bloomsbury publishing house founded ran by Leonard and Virginia Woolf. The press was founded in the interwar period, as printing became a hobby for the couple, diverting Virginia when her writing became too stressful. Both Woolf's taught themselves to use a printing press, publishing 527 titles from the period of 1917 to 1946.
In the original publisher's cloth binding. Externally, smart. Minor bumping to the head and tail of the spine and to the extremities. Spine is a little discoloured, with a few small marks to the boards and spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean.
