New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1925 (1931). Octavo. Publisher's orange cloth boards; cream paper spine label printed in brown; fore edges untrimmed. Cream dust jacket, printed in black and yellow, designed by Vanessa Bell. Slight chipping to top edge of spine label, minor fray at top of spine, no marks, else very good or better in rare, intact pictorial dust jacket with some minor chips at top of spine, a shadow on front panel and some smudges to lower panel. Dust jacket is not clipped, both instances of "$2.50" appear on each flap turn-in. Formerly in the collection of R. O. Blechman, an American animator, illustrator, children's-book author, graphic novelist and editorial cartoonist whose work has been the subject of retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art and other institutions.
First edition, sixth impression. Ostensibly, a sixth edition according to Carter but not by this publisher. There were three impressions in 1925, a fourth in March of 1927, and a fifth in October 1927. The sixth impression of 2100 copies was issued on 29 January 1931. Woolf's novel was a runaway success, going to eleven impressions for Harcourt, and is still in print today in various editions. This copy in a particularly iconic dust jacket of Woolf's most famous book in a dust jacket of her sister Vanessa Bell's design. A wonderful copy of this exceedingly elusive title in dust jacket.
