Highlight: Two Stories and Kew Gardens – new Woolf acquisitions

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

Two extremely rare and welcome additions were recently made to the library’s holdings of works by Virginia Woolf (1882–1941): Two Stories (1917), which consists of ‘Three Jews’ by Leonard Woolf (1880–1969) and ‘The Mark on the Wall’ by Virginia Woolf (the St Andrews copy has an orange card inserted in-between the cover and front fly-leaf, and bears the inscription: ‘Adrian Stephen’s [sic] Virginia’s brother gave me this in the late 1930ties Enid Marx’); and Kew Gardens (1919), one of Woolf’s most enduringly popular short stories. These titles are major staging points in the development of her iconic ‘experimental’ modernist style; they are also two of the earliest publications from Leonard and Virginia Woolf’s The Hogarth Press, one of the most successful and influential small presses in the first half of the twentieth century.
