  9. Night and Day.

    Night and Day.

    First edition, second impression. One of a tiny handful of titles published as part of the "Covent Garden Library" a short-lived marketing ploy by Duckworth. As such, however, this issue, which eluded Kirkpatrick at least in detail, should by rights have a distinct bibliographical number under the entry for Night and Day. The number produced in this format must have been very low indeed and copies in this condition and in dust jacket are of the utmost scarcity. Learn More

    Jacob's Room.

    First edition, first impression, presentation copy to Vanessa Bell, inscribed by the author on publication: "Vanessa Bell from V.W. Oct. 1922".

    First editions, first impressions of both volumes, Nelly Cecil's copies, the First Series with her ownership inscription, the Second Series a presentation copy, with the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "Nelly Cecil from Virginia Woolf". A fine association: Lady Eleanor Cecil (1868-1959, née Lambton), wife of Lord Robert Cecil (1864-1958, an architect of the League of Nations, for which he was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1937), was a central figure in Woolf's life from her childhood days, one of the circle of aristocratic young women to which the well-connected Violet Dickinson introduced her.

    Kew Gardens. Decorated by Vanessa Bell.

    Third edition, limited to 500 copies of which this is number 201. This copy is signed by both Virginia Woolf and Vanessa Bell, though the limitation does not call for signatures and signed copies such as this one are rare. Kew Gardens was Woolf's first individually published work, and it marked her experimentation with a new type of realism. A fantastic example of the Chelsea Bindery's work. Learn More
