Letter from Donald Brace to Margaret West (31/03/1936)


University of Reading, Special Collections

Donald Brace informs the Company will likely work from the corrected proofs instead of the ones sent in instalments without corrections. He notes that West had planned for the manuscript to be ready for the printer by mid-March, but the first proofs' arrival indicates the Press is ahead of schedule. He says that West had planned publication for mid-May, but the corrected proofs only arrive days before, and the Company's time of publication will be too close to summer. Brace notes the Company could delay publication to August, but he doesn't prefer the 3+ months interval between English and American publication. He asks West to ask the Woolfs and states simultaneous publication would be best. He asks West if the Press plans to use Vanessa Bell's wrapper, and if so, when it can be seen. He also asks for a newer photograph of Virginia Woolf.
