Reserve Ask us a question

First edition, first impression, of the second of the two volumes of Woolf's Common Reader, collecting critical essays, articles, and book reviews that had previously appeared in various publications. With a Hogarth Press advertisement for the works of Virginia Woolf loosely inserted. Hogarth Press books are notoriously fragile, this copy is remarkably well-preserved.

This copy has a highly distinguished collector's provenance, bearing the bookplate of William Beekman to the front pastedown. Much of Beekman's excellent Bloomsbury Group and Hogarth Press collection now forms part of the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library.

Kirkpatrick A18a; Woolmer 315.
