WOOLF, Virginia.
The Common Reader: Second Series.
London: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1932. London: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press,, 1932. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell. Minor bumping to spine ends, the binding otherwise sharp, faint traces of a once removed label to front pastedown, else internally crisp. A fine copy in the near-fine jacket, not price-clipped, slight creasing along upper edge of front panel and flap, a couple of minute edge-splits, notably unfaded. First edition, first impression, of the second of the two volumes of Woolf's Common Reader, collecting critical essays, articles, and book reviews that had previously appeared in various publications. With a Hogarth Press advertisement for the works of Virginia Woolf loosely inserted. Hogarth Press books are notoriously fragile, this copy is remarkably well-preserved. This copy has a highly distinguished collector's provenance, bearing the bookplate of William Beekman to the front pastedown. Much of Beekman's excellent Bloomsbury Group and Hogarth Press collection now forms part of the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library. Kirkpatrick A18a; Woolmer 315.
Bookseller: Peter Harrington. ABA/ ILAB. [London, United Kingdom]
