About This Item

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Dust Jacket Included. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1929. First Edition. Hardcover. Woolf, Virginia. A ROOM OF ONE'S OWN. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1929, 8vo., 202pp. Publisher's original dark blue boards, titles to spine gilt. A near fine fresh copy in the rarely seen correct slate dustwrapper, printed in black & blue of the First American Edition, first printing. A lovely example of the very uncommon edition preceded only by the signed limited edition issued in the USA & simultaneously in the United Kingdom. Woolf's major polemic against patriarchy, based loosely on two lectures she delivered, one at Newnham and the other at Girton. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A12a. Woolmer 215. Woolf observed in her diary, "I shall be attacked for a feminist". An increasingly uncommon & important Woolf title & 20th century literary highlight. Excellent copy. Kirkpatrick A12c.

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.
