    One of 450 Numbered Copies, Signed by Virginia Woolf

    Virginia Woolf. A Room of One's Own. New York: The Fountain Press and London: The Hogarth Press, 1929. First edition, number 292 of 450 copies signed by Woolf on the half-title page in her signature purple ink. Small royal octavo. 159 pages. Publisher's maroon cloth boards with gilt spine titles. Top edge uncut, fore-edge and bottom edge partially trimmed. Minor edge wear to boards, with two small bumps to the fore-edge of the boards. Spine and top edges a bit faded. Minor white staining to the boards. Light toning to the text edges. A solid, internally clean copy in very good condition.

    An extended essay based on a series of lectures Woolf delivered at two women's colleges at Cambridge University in 1928 in which she examined the societal obstacles women writers faced (and, perhaps, continue to face) in the literary arena. "A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction." A feminist classic by one of the pre-eminent modernist writers.
