$220.00

British author Virginia Woolf produced some of the best prose of the twentieth century and largely defined the Modernist Movement in England. Her greatest novels, including Mrs. Dalloway and To the Lighthouse, are consistently ranked some of the best fiction ever written. Her essays are also major literary achievements, including A Room of One’s Own, which is considered essential feminist reading. She was central to the artistic communities of her era, too. She was a founding member of the Bloomsbury Group and, with her husband, she operated the Hogarth Press, which published numerous major works. In Granite and Rainbow, her legacy as a writer is honored through a compilation of craft essays. One section is dedicated to The Art of Fiction. The other section is dedicated to The Art of Biography. Published posthumously, Granite and Rainbow reveals Virginia Woolf’s artistic methods and philosophies. It unlocks new readings of her many other works. It is a revealing set of essays that any Woolf collector or aspiring writer would enjoy.

This first edition, first printing is in very good condition. In the original blue cloth, very good with only bumping to spine ends and one corner. Text block fine. In the original dust jacket, very good with only chips, creases, and small closed tears. Dust jacket design in the iconic style by Vanessa Bell, Woolf’s sister.

A very good first edition of Virginia Woolf’s essays.
