Cloth, 8vo, 23 cm, xi, 177 pp, facs. Compiled by J. Howard Woolmer, with a short history of the Press by Mary E. Gaither. "In 1917, Leonard and Virginia Woolf bought a handpress and set it up in their dining room at Hogarth House. After teaching themselves to use the press, they printed 150 copies of Two Stories, a 31-page pamphlet containing Leonard's "Three Jews" and Virginia's "The Mark on the Wall." Dora Carrington did four woodcuts for it, and each copy was hand- stitched into Japanese paper covers. The Woolfs had already decided that if Two Stories sold well they would "print and publish in the same way poems or other short works which the commercial publisher would not look at." Within a month they had sold 124 copies. Thus began The Hogarth Press, which went on to publish the early poems of T. S. Eliot as well as "The Waste Land," all of Virginia's novels after her first two, work by Katherine Mansfield, Robert Graves, Robinson Jeffers, Christopher Isherwood, C. Day Lewis, H. G. Wells, William Plomer, Roger Fry, and many others including the first English translations of the Russian novelists and the collected papers of Sigmund Freud. By 1938, the year Virginia Woolf sold her interest to John Lehmann, the Press had published 440 titles and had become one of the influential literarysocial, and political voices between the wars." - from the blurb.
