Richmond: Hogarth Press, 1922.

Vanessa Bell. First Edition. Woolf, Virginia. JACOB'S ROOM. London: The Hogarth Press, 1922. First Edition of Virginia Woolf's third novel, a homage to those soldiers who died in World War 1 and to her late brother Thoby, in which she completely breaks with the traditional form. "There's no doubt in my mind that I have found out how to begin (at 40) to say something in my own voice." 8vo. 290 pp. + 14 pp. of publisher's adverts. A near fine copy in crocus-yellow cloth, small bump at lower front tip, cream printed paper label to the spine in a lovely example of the Vanessa Bell designed dustwrapper showing modest use and a couple of tiny chips and one small "island" loss on the back panel. Overall a wonderful copy of this elusive Woolf Highlight. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A6a. Woolmer 26.
