Virginia Woolf, Lee, Hermione.  Published by Chatto & Windus, London, 1996. First Edition. 8vo up to 9½” tall., 892pp. with photographic plates, family genealogical chart, index and notes. Green cloth boards with gilt spine titles, lettered endpapers. In collectible, unread condition; in fine, unclipped dustjacket.  ” Lee extricates Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) from clichés about madness and modernism to reveal a vigorous artist whose work is politically probing as well as psychologically delicate. She makes brilliant use of the formidable Woolf archives to let the writer speak directly to us, then comments shrewdly on her words’ hidden significances. Biographies don’t get much better than this.”  3773  $50
