New York: Crosby Gaige, 1928.
First Edition. Woolf, Virginia. ORLANDO. A Biography. Morocco Presentation Binding. New York: Crosby Gaige, 1928. A very good example of this rare issue. One of very few copies bound thus and unknown to Kirkpatrick. Colophon shows the number 4 in red ink but is unsigned. Speculation suggests that perhaps the first 5 copies were thus bound out of the edition limited to 800 copies [of a total run of 861] printed on pure rag paper. Dark green morocco, elegantly decorated & ruled, the spine panel faded to brown. Endpapers are marbled and there is a handsome name plate on the front pastedown. A rare issue of this cornerstone Woolf title in the publishers original slipcase. [Not mentioned in Kirkpatrick A11 ].
