What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
The first edition, first impression.
In the original unclipped Vanessa Bella dust wrapper.
'The Years' was the final of Woolf's novels published in her lifetime, an epic following one family across the generations and decades of history, from in the 1880s to the mid 1930s.
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.
