About This Item

TO THE LIGHTHOUSE -- Virginia Woolf -- Hogarth Press, 1927 -- 1st ed & 1st printing -- with ORIGINAL Vanessa Bell dust jacket in mylar cover.

Some foxing to the pages; some chipping to the top of the spine & sunning to spine; separation along the seam of the front flap. Overall a beautiful copy.
Virginia Woolf's modernist masterpiece with the iconic, unmistakable Vanessa Bell woodcut on the cover – very rare; and especially rare at this price in such good condition.

Synopsis

To the Lighthouse is a novel by Virginia Woolf. A landmark novel of high modernism, the text, centering on the Ramsay family and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland between 1910 and 1920, skillfully manipulates temporality and psychological exploration. To the Lighthouse follows and extends the tradition of modernist novelists like Marcel Proust and James Joyce, where the plot is secondary to philosophical introspection, and the prose can be winding and hard to follow.
