The Marmosite's Miscellany.London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press, 1925 Stock Code: 144345
First edition, first impression. Robert Graves only used the pseudonym of John Doyle for this one work but he adopted a number of pen names throughout his early career, particularly for contributions to periodicals such as The Carthusian, The Spectator, and Woman's Leader. The Sussex ledge shows 106 copies sold by 6 January 1928.
This copy has the ownership inscription of a Mary Neighbour giving a North Oxford address in Polstead Road - Graves studied English Literature at Oxford University after the war, living briefly in the house of John Masefield on Boar's Hill.
Octavo. Original purple, orange and yellow floral-patterned paper boards, titles printed in black on cream paper label to front board.
Covers somewhat dulled and lightly worn to corners but nonetheless unusually sound and intact for this fragile production, and internally clean, very good condition indeed.
Higginson & Williams A18.a.; Woolmer 59.
