In a Province.
Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, London., 1934. First edition. Octavo. 350 pages. 1250 copies were printed, of which 300 were pulped. The author's rare first book. From the blurb: ''There are very few novels about South Africa which throw any light on the relations between the races. Here, however, is a first novel...which deals with a situation involving two individuals, one white and one black. It shows the breaking-up of two worlds, one pagan and one protestant, and hints at the possibility of some future reintegration. The author is a Dutch South African, whose father fought against the English in the Boer War. His insight and his sympathies would in any case be remarkable, but are most striking in one who was born and bred on the veld.'' Fore-edges of last few pages a little spotted, otherwise fine in the very scarce, very good indeed, slightly marked, dustwrapper, by Anthony Butts, which has a short tear and crease at the top edge of upper panel.
