To the Lighthouse

London: J.M. Dent, (1938).


Softcover. Uncorrected proof of the first Everyman's Library edition. Printed wrappers. A good only copy with the rear wrap lacking, front wrap detached, and some erosion to the spine. Still a rarity of one of the author's most influential novels, a richly textured examination of gender and family, told through stream-of-consciousness narratives. Proofs of the early Everyman's Library books are exceptionally scarce. *Connolly 100*.
