Notes

First edition, first impression. With the author's signed presentation inscription to the front free endpaper, "Saxon from Virginia". Cambridge Apostle Saxon Sydney-Turner (1880-1962) was a classics scholar at Cambridge contemporaneous with Bell, Strachey, Leonard, and Thoby Stephen. His presence at Thoby's inaugural "Thursday Evening" in 1905 marked him as one of the first members of the Bloomsbury Group, and he was also a part of the Stephens' 1909 expeditionary force at the Wagner festival at Beyreuth. Woolf was a close friend, and included him in her farcical preface to Orlando, praising his "wide and peculiar erudition."
