About this Item

8vo, pp. 333. Original black boards, lettered in gilt on spine. Publisher's device in gold to front panel. Top edge gilt, leading and bottom edge uncut. Light bumping to corners, heavier bump to top right, spine gilt a little faded. A near fine copy. Eight plates. First edition. No. 494 of 861 copies, SIGNED BY THE AUTHOR ON VERSO OF HALF-TITLE. Precedes the English trade edition (Hogarth Press, 1928) by nine days. Woolf's transgendered picaresque, sending Orlando on adventures through four centuries and a variety of guises. The eponymous hero(ine) was modelled on the author's friend Vita Sackville-West, to whom the book is dedicated. (Sackville-West's son Nigel later described Orlando as 'the longest love letter in literature'.) This copy is signed in Woolf's familiar purple ink, and lacks only the all but unfindable purple glassine dustwrapper. A lovely example. Kirkpatrick A-11a Kirkpatrick: A-11a.
