Signed Virginia Woolf for Collectors


We currently have a limited edition of one of 500 copies of Street Haunting, printed by The Grabhorn Press in 1930 and signed by Virginia Woolf. The essay uses the quest to purchase a pencil as an opportunity to contrast carefree "street sauntering" with "street haunting" which hints at disturbing aspects of walking in the city.

This is No. 145 of an edition of 500, signed by the author. It has a decorative cover with green leather spine and gilt lettering. The book is tight and unmarked. The spine is somewhat rubbed at top and bottom. The lower front cover corner is bumped.

You may make an appointment to view this book by calling the library and leaving a message for Pam or Judy. The phone number is 703-689-2700. Or, you may use e-mail to contact them. Serious inquiries only, please.

The book is priced on RestonFriends1 at $1,800.
