    Virginia Woolf. Jacob's Room. Richmond: Hogarth Press, 1922.

Octavo. 290, 14, ads pages. Publisher's bright orange cloth, printed paper label on spine. Spine slightly askew; backstrip and paper label faintly dulled and lightly rubbed; some light even soiling.

    Logan Pearsall Smith (1865-1946) was an American-born English writer and critic. Although he had an excellent reputation as a brilliant essayist, his connection to Virginia Woolf is an excellent one: his niece, Karin Stephen (a well-known psychologist) was married to Adrian Stephen, Virginia Woolf's brother. She and her husband were members of "Old Bloomsbury," as designated by Woolf's husband, Leonard.
