      WOOLF, VIRGINIA. Kew Gardens. Title printed in brown, text printed within woodcut borders designed by Vanessa Bell. 4to, original color block-printed paper boards, small chip to spine foot with 15mm tall stain extending slightly to rear board; original glassine wrapper, tears to head and foot of spine into panels, rear flap torn and frayed along edges and partly separated (additional glassine wrap present with defects corresponding to the former); faint toning to front and rear endpapers, otherwise contents clean.

      Estimate $5,000 - 7,500

      unsophisticated copy of the third english (limited) edition; number 62 of 500 copies, signed by woolf and bell in purple ink on the limitation. The limited quarto edition (the first two were octavo) greatly expands the illustrations by Bell, with her decorative borders on each page. An uncommon survival of a fragile book, showing virtually unblemished boards, the oft-abused spine completely intact, and with the glassine. Kirkpatrick A3c; Woolmer 155.
