Harcourt, Brace and Company, New York, 1923. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First edition. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original yellow cloth with a paper spine label, lacking the rare dust jacket, SIGNED AND CONTEMPORARILY DATED BY VIRGINIA WOOLF on the half-title as follows: "Virginia Woolf / Oct. 1923"; Virginia Woolf's third novel, in which she presents Jacob Flanders' life story from his childhood through his adulthood until he is killed during World War I. In this important modernist work, Woolf presents Jacob's life story primarily through various women in his life who give their own perspectives of him -- an experimental form and a dramatic departure from her more conventional prior novels. A mere 1,500 copies of the first American edition were printed. The book was first published in England in a Subscriber's edition of 40 copies (only a few of which are on the market), issued prior to the UK trade edition and for which Woolf filled in a preprinted Subscriber's slip with the book's title and the Subscriber's name. She also signed and dated the slips Oct. 1922. The Subscriber's slip, signed separately from the book, then would be tipped onto the book's front free endpaper. Here we have a Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing. The book is mildly askew at the spine, shows light handling soil, moderate bumps and some wear to the board corners, some modest spotting to the boards, thin and low diagonal bump across rear board, light pushing to the spine ends, some wear to the spine label's edges, and a short marginal tear to the first page of text -- not affecting the text. As noted above, the Subscribers copies were signed on a slip which then was tipped onto the book's front free endpaper -- i.e. the book itself was not signed. In the copy presented here, however, Woolf has signed and dated the book itself. Copies of this important work actually signed by Woolf are extraordinarily scarce to the market. Furthermore, this copy has an excellent Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval veteran and noted Actor Douglas Fairbanks, whose bookplate resides on the book's front pastedown. A Very Good copy of an important Virginia Woolf novel, with the book itself SIGNED AND CONTEMPORARILY DATED BY VIRGINIA WOOLF. RARE INDEED.
