About This Item

New York and London: Fountain press/Hogarth Press, 1929. Original red cloth, gilt title, (9.75 x 6 inches), 159 pages, plus numbered colophon. Signed limited first edition, number 261 of 492 copies signed by Woolf in her characteristic purple ink on the half title page, of which only 450 were for sale. Printed in U.S. by Robert Josephy and published on October 21, 1929, this edition preceded the English edition, both signed and trade, by three days (Kirkpatrick A12. Woolmer 215A). Exterior is in exceptionally fine condition, cloth is clean, and bright, the corners tight; internally, there is a closed tear along edge on page 65 (presumely from hastily opening the uncut page), binding is tight, overall a desirable copy of this classic feminist text.. Signed. First Edition. Cloth. Near Fine. Tall Octavo.

Synopsis

A Room of One's Own was first published in October 1929 in the UK and USA alike as a limited edition run of 492 numbered, signed copies. The first English edition and impression was released three days later with the Vanessa Bell dust jacket, published by Hogarth Press, the Woolfs' own publishing house. The first US edition was published by Harcourt Brace & Co.
