Black cloth boards with silver lettering to spine. xlv, 215 p.p. In near fine condition overall. After Virginia Woolf's death most of the manuscript of Women & Fiction was given by Leonard Woolf to the Fitzwilliam Museum where, until its rediscovery by Professor Rosenbaum, it lay virtually unknown for nearly fifty years. With its careful transcription, and the incorporation of shorter sections of the manuscript from the Monks House Papers at the University of Sussex, it is now possible to follow the intracacies of Woolf's creative process as she develops through constant revision, the ideas and images that eventually evolved into this century's most influential work of feminist criticism and literary theory.
