What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, With Dustwrapper
The first edition, first impression.
In the original unclipped dust wrapper designed by Vanessa Bell.
Illustrated with five photographic plates. Collated, complete.
Woolf's essay confronts three questions: How should war be prevented? Why does the government not support education for women? Why are women not allowed to engage in professional work?
Originally conceived as a work of fiction and non-fiction simultaneously, with one half of the work dedicated to each style, Woolf eventually divided the work; the fiction portion became Woolf's most popular novel during her lifetime, 'The Years'.
A fascinating work written shortly before the onset of war, the views Woolf expresses in this essay have been described as feminist, pacifist, anti-fascist, and anti-imperialist.
In the original cloth binding in the original unclipped dust wrapper. Externally very smart with mark to lower extremity of front board. Dust wrapper is smart with chipping and the occasional closed tear. Handling marks and the odd spot to the wrap. Internally firmly bound. Pages bright and clean with just the odd spot.
