WOOLF, Virginia A Room of One's Own

Hogarth Press / Fountain Press, 1929.

First edition, large paper issue, number 248 of 492 copies signed by the author. Original maroon cloth with gilt titles. A near fine copy, with some fading to the spine and lesser fading to a strip at the top of the boards.

An extended essay, based on Woolf's lectures at a women's college at Cambridge University in 1928. In it, Woolf addresses her thoughts on "the question of women and fiction," interpreted by Woolf as many questions. In A Room of One's Own, Woolf ponders the significant question of whether or not a woman could produce art of the high quality of Shakespeare. In doing so, she examines women's historical experience as well as the distinctive struggle of the woman artist.
"a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is going to write."
