Summary: This 21 reel collection is filmed in four distinct categories: diaries (3 reels), manuscripts (9 reels), reading notebooks (1 reel), and correspondence (8 reels). Included in the correspondence reels are two reels devoted exclusively to letters written to Virginia Woolf by Vanessa Bell and Clive Bell. This collection reveals not only vital bibliographical information but very significant insights into Virginia Woolf's habits of reading and criticism. The manuscripts and reading notebooks contain substantial sections of manuscript notes compiled in the connection with the writing of her controversial feminist polemic Three Guineas and the biography of Roger Fry. This collection also features a sequence of eleven unpublished (and complete) stories and sketches dating in composition from around 1909 to 1930 and in addition, six unfinished draft stories and sketches as well as the complete Monk's House Papers, barring correspondence and a number of unmarked proofs and cuttings.
