Letter from Leonard Woolf to Viola Tree (20/10/1925)


University of Reading, Special Collections

Leonard Woolf informs Viola Tree that the Press will be glad to publish her book, and informs her of terms they would offer: the Press will pay tree a 15% royalty on the first 2000 copies sold and 20% on further copies, as well as paying Tree an advance of 50 pounds on the day of publication. Woolf suggests the book should have 8 illustrations, and states publishing should not be rushed through autumn because the bookstores would be stocked up on other books during Christmas. Woolf adds that Virginia Woolf has a few suggestions for the book for Tree.

Typescript letter signed by Leonard Woolf.
