Distribution seems to have been entirely private. Just the slightest trace of foxing, else a fine copy of one of the rarest "A" items in the Woolf canon missing from most collections. In a lovely custom gilt-stamped red morocco case in fine condition. In a speech opening the Roger Fry Memorial Exhibition, Woolf spoke of how Fry had transformed the way people looked at art and in a letter to Vanessa Bell, she described Fry as "the plume in Bloomsbury's cap"
