The Voyage Out

By Woolf, Virginia




From the book:As the streets that lead from the Strand to the Embankment are very narrow, it is better not to walk down them arm-in-arm. If you persist, lawyers’ clerks will have to make flying leaps into the mud; young lady typists will have to fidget behind you. In the streets of London where beauty goes unregarded, eccentricity must pay the penalty, and it is better not to be very tall, to wear a long blue cloak, or to beat the air with your left hand. One afternoon in the beginning of October when the traffic was becoming brisk a tall man strode along the edge of the pavement with a lady on his arm. Angry glances struck upon their backs. The small, agitated figures - for in comparison with this couple most people looked small - decorated with fountain pens, and burdened with despatch-boxes, had appointments to keep, and drew a weekly salary, so that there was some reason for the unfriendly stare which was bestowed upon Mr. Ambrose’s height and upon Mrs. Ambrose’s cloak. But some enchantment had put both man and woman beyond the reach of malice and unpopularity. In his guess one might guess from the moving lips that it was thought; and in hers from the eyes fixed stonily straight in front of her at a level above the eyes of most that it was sorrow. It was only by scorning all she met that she kept herself from tears, and the friction of people brushing past her was evidently painful. After watching the traffic on the Embankment for a minute or two with a stoical gaze she twitched her husband’s sleeve, and they crossed between the swift discharge of motor cars. When they were safe on the further side, she gently withdrew her arm from his, allowing her mouth at the same time to relax, to tremble; then tears rolled down, and leaning her elbows on the balustrade, she shielded her face from the curious. Mr. Ambrose attempted consolation; he patted her shoulder; but she showed no signs of admitting him, and feeling it awkward to stand beside a grief that was greater than his, he crossed his arms behind him, and took a turn along the pavement.

The Voyage Out

WOOLF, VIRGINIA

New York: George H. Doran, 1920. First American Edition of Woolf’s first book; revised by the author for American publication. A small number of these American sheets were exported to England to be issued by Duckworth in 1920, and then by the Hogarth Press in 1929. Other than these two issues, the revised text has not been published in the United Kingdom. Bookplate; fine in a much better than usual example of the dust jacket, which has some very small chips and tiny tears at the extremities.

The Voyage Out

Woolf, Virginia

London: Duckworth & Co, 1915. First edition. 458 pp. + [6, 16, ads] pp. 8vo. Publisher's moss-green cloth boards, spine lettered in gold, upper cover ruled and lettered in black. Some wear, cloth rubbed particularly at extremities with minimal loss. Housed in quarter black morocco-backed clamshell box. First edition. 458 pp. + [6, 16, ads] pp. 8vo. KA COX'S COPY OF VIRGINIA WOOLF'S FIRST BOOK. Signed "Katharine Cox/ March 1915" on the front free endpaper. Ka Cox, later Katharine Arnold-Forster, and Virginia Woolf first met while spending a weekend in Oxford in 1911. The women were immediately drawn to each other, and Cox became almost a member of the Bloomsbury household. Woolf appeared to have been particularly intrigued by Cox's love affair with Rupert Brooke, at Newnham, where she became a Neo-Pagan. After both their marriages (Cox married labour politician Will Arnold-Forster) the friendship seems to have cooled. Katharine, however, remained devoted to Virginia throughout her life. Kirkpatrick and Clarke A1a

Green cloth binding with gilt lettering to the spine and black lettering to title block on front board. Boards are a bit rubbed with an open tear to the front board and slight staining. Internally the text block is tight and clean. The guttering at the small title page is split. The interesting thing with this copy is that it is stamped in perforated letters on the title page 'Presentation copy'. I have so far been unable to find any other similar. I have photographed this page with coloured paper at the back to show up the stamp. The price reflects the unfortunate damage to the front board.
