Vanessa Bell. First Edition. Woolf, Virginia. WOOD IS A PLEASANT THING TO THINK ABOUT. [From The Mark On The Wall] THE CHELSEA BROADSIDE. London: The Chelsea Book Club Broadside No. 1, [1921]. A single leaf printed recto only, 13" x 7" 1/4 containing two woodcuts by Vanessa Bell. A fine example. The second [partial separate edition & one of Woolf's scarcest A items. [Kirkpatrick A2c] being an extract from the last paragraph of the revised version of The Mark on the Wall as published in Monday or Tuesday. The illustrations for this broadside were not published elsewhere. The broadside is rare & not much is known about the actual printing history. Kirkpatrick notes that John Rodker was living in Belsize Park Gardens at the time but there is no further clue pointing to him bringing out the edition. Certainly very few were printed & only a handful survive. Excellent example. Some pencil notes on the verso at the top.
