Leonard and Virginia Woolf as Publishers: The Hogarth Press 1917-41.

Charlottesville: University Press of Virginia, 1992. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine tight copy in a Fine, bright dust jacket. The Woolf's started their private press in 1917 and at the time of Virginia's suicide in 1941 she and Leonard had produced 474 titles that included works by T.S. Eliot, Katherine Mansfield, John Maynard Keynes, the great Russian authors and Sigmund Freud. In this work of scholarship, the authortraces the history of Hogarth Press, Leonard and Virginia Woolf's publishing enterprise, from its beginnings as a hand press in their drawing room to its later success as a small, profitable commercial printing press, run in partnership with the poet John Lehmann. In the early years, the Woolfs limited Hogarth Press to literary works, such as short stories by Katherine Mansfield or T. S. Eliot's poetry, but they later published books of political, historical and social importance by such pioneers as Sigmund Freud and John Maynard Keynes. Initially conceived by Leonard Woolf as a diversion for himself and his wife from the demands of their work, Hogarth became the vehicle through which Virginia Woolf was able to publish her writing free from the constraints of editors.
