All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.

NY, Harcourt Brace, 1921. The first American edition of this early collection of short fiction, in which Woolf explores the stream of consciousness technique that she used to great effect in later novels. One of only 1500 copies, this copy in the black cloth binding. Slight foxing to cloth; near fine in a very near fine, price-clipped dust jacket, professionally, preemptively strengthened on the verso along the folds. A beautiful copy; easily the most attractive one we've seen. [#023688] $2,500
London, Hogarth Press, 1931. Uneven fading to violet cloth; corners bumped; small Lilly Library discard label rear pastedown. A very good copy in the Vanessa Bell-designed dust jacket, which is chipped at the corners and extremities, including the bottom inch of the spine losing the publisher's name, and extremely fragile at the folds: good only. Still, an affordable first edition in dust jacket of her most experimental book. [#033361] $400
NY, Harcourt Brace, (1923). The first American edition. Owner name on flyleaf; stray pen mark rear cover; some abrasion to spine label; modest general handling. About near fine, lacking the dust jacket. [#017634] $300
London, Hogarth Press, 1937. Dampstaining to cloth and the outer upper corner of the text block; foxing to endpages; a good copy in a good, spine-stained and darkened Vanessa Bell dust jacket that is edge-chipped and fragile at the folds. [#033362] $250
London, Hogarth Press, 1947. A posthumous collection of essays. Marginal pencil marks to a few pages of text; near fine in a very good, spine-darkened Vanessa Bell-designed dust jacket with a couple small stains and edge chips. A respectable copy of a fragile book, manufactured during the early postwar years, that readily shows damage or wear. [#033365] $75
London, Hogarth Press, 1943. A posthumously published collection of short stories, six of which are published here for the first time. A small wartime volume, printed on cheap paper and in a thin binding. Acidification to pages; a very good copy in a fair Vanessa Bell dust jacket, now in two parts and with only half the spine present. Name and address written in pencil on rear panel. [#033364] $60
London, Hogarth Press, 1953. Excerpts from Woolf's diaries of 1918-1941, pertaining to her writing life. Foxing to endpages, wear to the cloth at the spine extremities; a very good copy in a good, spine-tanned, Vanessa Bell dust jacket with small chips along the edges and splitting to the folds. [#033366] $50
London, Hogarth Press, 1958. Woolf's essays on the art of fiction and biography. Pages acidifying, small corner bump; dampstaining to rear board; a good copy in a good, spine-tanned Vanessa Bell-designed dust jacket exhibiting some of the same dampstaining on the rear panel. [#033367] $50
Cambridge, University Press, 1945. A short critical introduction to Woolf's life and novels. Fine in a mildly spine-tanned, else fine dust jacket. [#018807] $25
