The eleven letters in this volume were first printed as a series of twelve pamphlets between 1931 and 1932 by the Hogarth Press. Eleven of the letters are found here bound together, the authors include: E. M. Forster, Viscount Cecil, Rosamond Lehmann, Raymond Mortimer, Francis Birrell, L. A. G. Strong, Virginia Woolf (‘A Letter to a Young Poet’), Hugh Walpole, J. C. Hardwick, Louis Golding, and Peter Quennell. The final letter Rebecca West’s, ‘A Letter to a Grandfather’ wasn’t published until a month after this issue was bound together and so was not included.
One of 500 copies taken from the original print run and bound up together thus. Spine gently rolled, and a little soiling to upper board. With a small Christmas card, from a woman to her sister, placed between the pages of Lehmann’s ‘A Letter to a Sister’. An excellent copy. Kirkpatrick A17 (note).
