27 Sissinghurst [Hand-numbered SIGNED LIMITED Edition]
Sackville-West, Vita The Hogarth Press 1931 First Edition Hardcover Good No Jacket Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
This edition, set by hand at The Hogarth Press, was limited to 500 numbered copies, signed by the author. This copy is either number 154 or 184; The middle digit is difficult to decipher with complete confidence. Printed by hand by Leonard and Virginia Woolf. Consists of the poem Sissinghurst (5 pages long) bound in a sewn binding in booklet form, with stiff board covers. The boards are covered in a beige / brown marbled paper, with some green showing through the marbling in a few patches. The endpapers are also green. The main flaw with this copy is that the spine is significantly rubbed, with chips and loss and the backstrip and sewing exposed in a very narrow strip. As the spine is so slender this is not as bad as it at first sounds. Minor rubs to the corners. There is a previous owner's bookplate and date on the front endpaper. There is some very light sporadic foxing to the pages (primarily to the title page; the pages of the poem are almost free from any marks). The pages are deckle edged/ untrimmed and in very good condition. Vita and her husband, Harold Nicolson, bought Sissinghurst in 1930. The poem was composed like a letter for Vita's friend (and sometime lover) Virginia Woolf and when the Woolfs printed the poem they left out the full title of the poem, 'Sissinghurst. Thursday to V.W.' and put the 'Thursday to V.W.' on the first page of the poem instead. The Woolfs printed very little by hand - just a few other limited editions - and they gave up the hand-printing process in 1932. An early print number and a good copy of this very scarce booklet. Vita Sackville-West [1892-1962]; Hogarth Press; Bloomsbury interest. 102567
