A first edition, first printing published by The Hogarth Press in 1927. A very good book with a little light spotting to the page edges. No inscriptions. Some fading to the spine and some wear to the edges. In a very good dust wrapper which has some light restorative repair to the spine, mainly internally. There is a thin amount of chipping to the tail of the spine and a larger chip to the head. The blue lettering on the spine is still vibrant and bright. Some creasing and a little loss to the corners.

Upon completing the draft of this, her most autobiographical novel, Woolf described it as ‘easily the best of my books’ and her husband Leonard thought it a “‘masterpiece’ … entirely new ‘a psychological poem'”. They published it together at their Hogarth Press in London in 1927. The first impression comprised 3000 copies. The book outsold all Woolf’s previous novels, and the proceeds enabled the Woolfs to buy a car – which one would assume they used to drive to a lighthouse.
