1st Edition. Signed by Author. Woolf, Virginia. THE YEARS. London: The Hogarth Press, 1937 Signed by Virginia Woolf. First Edition. Crown 8vo. 469 pp. Publisher's light jade-green cloth, gilt titles to the spine. A lovely near fine or better copy in a superb example of the illustrated original cream dustwrapper designed by Vanessa Bell and printed in black and brown. Quite stunning edition. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A22a. Wolmer 423. The author's penultimate novel, bringing together all of her classic themes. The success of The Years, (now recognized as a feminist novel rather than simply a family saga), motivated Time Magazine to devote a 1937 cover to Virginia Woolf.
