Virginia Woolf Signed passport photo

Excessively rare matte-finish 1.5 x 2.25 photo of Woolf affixed to the original 5.75 x 3.75 British passport page, signed below in fountain pen. The page bears two ink stamps indicating the date of issue, April 18, 1933. In fine condition, with the date stamp trivially affecting a couple letters of the signature. This portrait of the 51-year-old Woolf resembles the most famous photo of her, taken at age 20, with both showing the author sullenly looking to her right, eyes cast downward in a longing gaze. A highly unusual and immensely desirable format. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
