[Vwoolf] Calling all book collectors!

Dear Catherine,
I think that this is a wonderful topic. I thought that I would include a section in my Reading talk about how academic repositories collect, not only in developing printed collections, but also manuscripts. Especially what we look for in manuscript collections that are offered as donations. I hope that this might be of interest to the Woolf community as members start thinking about placing their own collections.

With kind regards, Trevor

Hi Catherine,

That sounds totally brilliant. I do hope I can go to your panel in Reading. And Karen's idea about an essay for the VWM is also brilliant.

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--

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!
