Virginia Woolf: The Artist in a Commercial World

A Bibliography of Virginia Woolf

By B. J. Kirkpatrick

Oxford 3rd edition, 320pp. £20 order from our bookshop

Rupert Hart-Davis was a general publisher, but one more influenced by scholarship than by dictatorship from accountants and computers. One of his many excellent series was the Soho Bibliographies. This is now published by Oxford, and the revision of the Virginia Woolf volume reveals so much that it is exceptional value.
