310pp, original cloth. Spine faded, rubbed to extremities, spine ends chipped. Internally some light browning and foxing, with a tipped-in slip in pencil to ffep, but generally fairly clean. The book itself is of little consequence, but there is an envelope pasted to rear endpaper, addressed in Virginia Woolf's hand to a Mrs Lawrie of Reigate, inside is a typed copy of a letter from Mrs Lawrie to Woolf, expressing her admiration for her writing, and also enclosed is the reply, an autograph letter signed by Woolf, on Monk's House headed paper, dated the 22nd of August 1937, reading "Dear Mrs Lawrie, I must thank you for your letter, though I'm afraid I often leave letters unanswered. But it gave me real pleasure. Writing books often seems a useless occupation: it is a great encouragement when, now and again, somebody like yourself makes me feel that the time one has spent on them has not been wasted. Thank you again. And with best wishes, I am yours sincerely, Virginia Woolf". Now housed in a velvet-lined cloth drop-back box made by Temple Bookbinders. Kirkpatrick A10b
