WOOLF, Virginia. Orlando : A Biography. London: The Hogarth Press, 1960. Ninth Impression. Pp. (6),11-299,(2). 8vo, green cloth with gilt titles to spine. A volume in the Uniform Edition of the Works of Virginia Woolf. "In her diary Virginia Woolf says that she began 'Orlando' as a joke, but it became more serious as she wrote it. This is probably true of all comedies and fantasies which have produced great or good literature from Aristophanes toMolière, Sterne, and Samuel Butler -- there is something serious behind th e joke. At any rate 'Orlando', first published in 1928, received high praise from many critics and has proved to be one of the most popular of Virginia Woolf's books." - from the dust jacket. Very good in nicked, spine-sunned, price-clipped dust jacket. Ex-libris Bloomsbury Group scholar S.P. Rosenbaum, with his acquisition note inked to flyleaf, and pencilled marginal notations throughout. 25.00
