What a wonderful project.

I think it would probably be worth looking at my “Virginia Woolf & Bloomsbury” DB, if you haven’t already done so (I have posted the details to listserv on at least two previous occasions).

You need to go to here to download the server:


(I have never used a Mac, but you might get somewhere by starting here:

Once you have the Cardbox server installed, double-click on the icon on your desktop, then click on File: Open. Then click on the Server tag. In the large white box on the left, there should show: database.cardbox.net. Click on that and on the View tag.  Several databases should appear in the larger white box on the right, including ‘Virginia Woolf & Bloomsbury’ and ‘Index to the “Nation & Athenaeum”’ (also my database) . Highlight the one you want and then click on Open. (The databases can only be accessed when you are online.)

In ‘Virginia Woolf & Bloomsbury’, the easiest thing to do is Search/Select: Italian.  You currently get 191 records (some not relevant).  If there is an entry in the LO field on the right-hand side (e.g. vLarge-S19550000 (the first record), Kp4D130), that usually means that I have a copy of the book or article.  I have lots of Italian translations.

Hello everyone,

As some of you may already know, I’m working on a Marie Curie Research Project on the reception of Virginia Woolf in Italy.
As part of this project I’m building a database of all Italian translations of Woolf’s works (and of all articles/books/chapters/reviews written by Italians on Woolf).
Since I’ve been closed in my house from 24 February, I though I might try and share the results of my research all the same, and I decided to anticipate the exposition of all the Italian ‘first editions’ of Woolf’s works (which will take place at the end of my research project at the University of Reading) by creating an Instagram profile: Italianwoolf_project.
It can be visited here: https://www.instagram.com/italianwoolf_project/ (you don’t need to have an Instagram account).
At first I used to publish a book everyday, but now I publish a book every week (usually Wednesday), with some info I gathered from my research.
I hope you like it.

Thank you for the always interesting discussions and be safe, wherever you are!
