Great idea, Catherine!
Sounds like the project might turn into a terrific article for the Miscellany, eh, Vara?
(And don't forget Jon Richardson, Catherine.)
Anyway--I'll get in touch with you soon.
With best wishes for a fine conference in Reading--Karen Levenback

 Dear Woolfians,

In preparation for this year's upcoming conference at Reading, I am thinking about book collecting, Woolf, and the Hogarth Press. Specifically, I'm wondering what we, as members of the Woolf community, collect when/if we collect editions of Woolf's novels or Hogarth Press books?

Assuming that nobody can afford the $25,000 copy of Kew Gardens (1919) I saw at a recent antiquarian book fair, have you found a more affordable niche for collecting Woolf and/or Hogarth Press books? (I look for battered American editions of Woolf's novels, with somewhat intact Bell dust jackets; Emily Kopley talks about collecting the Hogarth Press Letters pamphlet series).

I've seen great essays by Kopley and Drew Patrick Shannon on collecting and/or interacting with H.P. / Woolf books, but I'd love to gather more stories about book collecting from within our own Woolfian community.

If you've got a story, an anecdote, or an article I should read, I'd love to hear from you, either via the list or personal email. Thanks in advance!
