21 October, 1924


Dear Nicolson,


I think if it were possible we should very much like to do what you suggest. The price would depend to some extent upon whether you wanted extra special paper &c [sic?]. If not, and we printed it ourselves, we could do you 100 copies, printed and bound for about £15 to £20--I would tell you the exact sum after going through the M[anu]S[cript]. The only thing against our printing it ourselves is that we could not do it absolutely immediately. We have certain small books which we are already pledged to give precedence to, and we shall not finish them before, I imagaine, Christmas. Would that be fatal? If it were, we could get you an estimate for having it printed <elsewhere>. Are you sure that it would not do as a small pamphlet to be published in a limited edition by us, at a limited edition of say 300 copies?


Yours sincerely | Leonard Woolf [signature]

Letter from Leonard Woolf to Harold Nicolson (21/10/1924)


University of Reading, Special Collections

Leonard Woolf writes to Nicolson to agree to print his work and that the price will depend on whether or not he would like special paper. Woolf states that he can print 100 copies for £15 - £20. He states that the press has already pledged to print a number of books which now means he cannot get Nicolson's work printed immediately, and could not finish before Christmas. Woolf asks if this means he would require a quote from another publisher. He asks if he would like it to be printed as a pamphlet instead.
