"Theodora Bosanquet from Virginia Woolf /1935". Bosanquet, longtime literary editor of Time and Tide wrote the monograph, Henry James At Work, that was published by the Hogarth Press in 1924. In appreciation, Virginia Woolf wrote: "Dear Miss Bosanquet, I think your essay is a great success, and I'm glad you did not keep it to tinker at, for I think you have suggested everything, and further work might well have spoilt it. As it is, you have got an immense deal into it, and made it come together perfectly as a whole…. I'm sure it ought to have a success with anyone who cared for Henry James and his work, and I think we are very lucky to get it". Small 8vo. 290 pp. A very good copy in somewhat faded emerald green cloth, gilt titles to the spine in a supplied dustwrapper. Kirkpatrick And Clarke A6c. Woolmer 26.
