This 1967 volume contains a selection of Virginia Woolf's essays, taken from the 6 volumes published in her lifetime by the Hogarth Press (owned and run by her husband). They deal almost exclusively with literary subjects, such as Montaigne, Chaucer, Lord Chesterfield and Gilbert White, but occasionally tackle topics such as 'Money and Love'.
The book is in very good condition, with an almost undamaged dust-wrapper. Bound in charcoal-grey cloth, with a blue oval lozenge on the spine containing the title in gilt, author's & publisher's names in gilt, and 3 gilt stars, there are no signs of shelfwear, and internally all pages are clean and bright. The binding is tight. The unclipped D/J/ is a little browned at the edges, and slightly worn at the top edge and all corners, but in excellent condition. All page edges are a little browned. A previous owner has written their name in biro on the title page (see photo), and there is one tiny brown stain on P. 177, also visible on P.178 (see photo).
