One of only 1000 examples published with four full-page woodcuts by Vanessa Bell.

First edition, first impression of Virigina Woolf's 1921 short story collection, hand printed by The Hogarth Press. This is an early publication for Woolf's Hogarth Press and hilariously, Woolf's husband, Leonard Woolf called it one of the worst printed books ever published because of the typographical mistakes in it.

Monday or Tuesday is the only collection of short stories that Virginia Woolf published during her lifetime, providing a fascinating insight into the early stages of development of themes that would blossom in her later masterpieces. A key Woolf text.

First edition, first impression, with the page of publisher's advertisements to the rear as called for. In the original cloth binding, with paper covered boards. A near-fine example both internally and externally with just minor bumping to the spine and light scuffing here and there. Four full page woodcuts by Vanessa Bell. One of the best copies out there.

Published by The Hogarth Press, London, 1921.
