Roger Fry - Twelve Original Woodcuts

This is the jacket cover of the first edition, published in 1921 by Leonard Woolf and Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press. 150 copies were printed. Squarish octavo, unpaginated, title page + 12 original woodcuts, each printed on a separate sheet.

A copy of the third impression, printed in 1922 is currently described as: "Internally the pages are bright and clean, and the woodcuts are good impressions. The original wrapper has a small closed tear along the front top edge, and a bit of light soiling, otherwise in very good condition. Very scarce in any of the impressions. Price $3,000.00"
