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.
