      Scope and Contents note. The laid in Insert Papers collection from the personal library of Leonard and Virginia Woolf consists of manuscripts, letters, and miscellaneous material that, for a variety of reasons, were placed by Leonard and Virginia Woolf in books . British authors Leonard and Virginia Woolf taught themselves to print in , and began to produce, at first as a hobby, small but significant books. In their Hogarth Press was discovered by a wide audience, and the Woolfs embarked on a more ambitious program.

      But it was Leonard Woolf, whose life as an intellectual had been shaped by his experience in Ceylon, who drew my greatest interest. In , Englishman Leonard Woolf – later the husband of literary giantess Virginia – completed his education at Trinity College in Cambridge and enlisted with the British Civil Service.   In March of , Virginia Woolf committed suicide in the nearby River Ouse. Her husband continued to live in the house until his death in Leonard played an active role in village life. He became a manager of the school in Rodmell in the s and was a president and treasurer of the Rodmell and District Horticultural Society.

      This is a wide-ranging biography of Leonard Woolf (–), an important yet somewhat neglected figure in British life. He is in the unusual position of being overshadowed by his wife, Virginia Woolf, and his role in helping her is part of this study. He was born in London to a father who was a successful barrister but whose early death left the family in economic difficulty. Let’s start this discussion on Virginia Woolf books by looking at your biography of Woolf, you mention that when you were studying English literature as an undergraduate at Oxford University, there weren’t any lectures on Woolf, and as a graduate student, you were told that Woolf was a ‘minor modernist’, not to be classed with the likes of James Joyce, T. S. Eliot or D. H. Lawrence.
