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.

Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in brown morocco, titles blocked to spine in cream, onlay to front board copied from the original decorated paper boards designed by Vanessa Bell, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Black and white illustrations throughout. Some mild spotting to title page, an excellent copy.
