First edition of Virginia Woolf's The Years

Every book collector has a wish list of books they would like to see in their collection and this is pretty high up on mine. A first edition of Virginia Woolf's final novel 'The Years'.

It's hard to imagine that any self proclaimed bibliophile  wouldn't want a book printed by hand at the Hogarth Press (a company founded by both Woolf and her husband Leonard which, rather famously, turned down the chance to print James Joyce's Ulysses) so I imagine this will be shelved for long. 

This edition is up for grabs at the Manhattan Book Company for $2,500.
