The Deluge and other poems.
London: by Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1926 - Octavo. Original marbled paper over boards, paper title label to front board. Extremities rubbed, spine and top edge of boards darkened, starting to head of front joint, occasional spotting to leaves. A good copy. First edition, first impression, one of 400 copies. Inscribed by Trevelyan to his Bloomsbury group friend Irene Cooper Willis on the first blank, "Irene, from Bob, 1926". Willis was a close friend of Trevelyan and received inscribed copies of most of the poet's books. As well as being an author in her own right, she was notably the literary executrix of Thomas Hardy, and also the friend and executrix of Vernon Lee [pseud. of the Florence-based aesthete author Violet Paget: 1856-1935]. Willis had connections to the whole Trevelyan clan: R. C. Trevelyan's younger brother the historian George Macaulay Trevelyan was involved in the founding of the British Institute of Florence, to which Willis bequeathed Vernon Lee's substantial library; and Willis also sat with Trevelyan's older brother Charles Philips Trevelyan on the executive committee of the Union of Democratic Control (the left-wing political group dissenting against British policy during the First World War), of which R. C. Trevelyan was also a member. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
