WOOLF MENTIONS HER PUBLISHED WORKS AND HER SISTER. Typed Letter Signed ("Virginia Woolf") and Inscribed, 1 p, 4to, Richmond, Surrey, May 16, 1923, on Hogarth House letterhead, postscript added at lower margin, leaf creased and lightly toned, float-mounted, framed. Woolf writes a reader who seems to be more interested in her sister's work than her own. In part: "None of my books, except Monday or Tuesday, is illustrated by Vanessa Bell or any other artist. Mrs. Bell did however, design a paper cover for my novel Jacob's Room, which is very effective. The books I have written are, / The Voyage Out, / Night and Day, / Monday or Tuesday, / Jacob's Room...." In her postscript she takes the liberty of including a list of Hogarth Press publications, "in case you are interested in them." See illustration on preceding page.
