The Years
Virginia Woolf, 1937
WOOLF, Virginia (1882-1941). The Years. London: The Hogarth Press, 1937.

First edition of the author’s last novel published in her lifetime, a fine copy in a superb dust jacket. In one of the novel’s earliest reviews, Peter Monro Jack wrote in the New York Times: “this is a long-drawn-out lyricism in the form of a novel … There is the minimum of substructure. But there is everywhere, on one lovely page after another, a kind of writing which reveals a kind of feeling that is more illuminating than a dozen well-made and documented novels. Mrs. Woolf has made, or unmade, her novel in the form of a poem or a piece of music.” Kirkpatrick A22a.

Octavo. Original cloth; pictorial dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell (minute wear at extremities); custom box.
