1947 The Moment and Other Essays
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, With Dustwrapper
The first edition, first impression. In the original unclipped dust wrapper designed by Vanessa Bell. This collection of twenty nine previously unpublished essays was published posthumously by her husband, Leonard Woolf by their printing house, The Hogarth Press. 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 Woolfs' taught themselves to use a printing press, publishing 527 titles from the period of 1917 to 1946. This collection contains essays on noted authors such as Sir Walter Scott and Lewis Carroll, alongside Woolf's more personal essay titled 'On Being Ill'. An interesting and varied collection of one of the greatest literary minds of the twentieth century.
In the original cloth binding in the original unclipped dust wrapper. Externally in excellent condition. Dust wrapper is very smart with chipping and the occasional closed tear to the extremities. Slight sunning to the spine. The odd spot to the reverse of the wrap. Internally firmly bound. Pages bright and clean with just the odd spot and marginal age toning due to war time paper used. Printing error, resulting in rough cut to rear endpaper and paste down.
