First edition. The first volume in the Winchester Bibliographies of Twentieth Century Writers series. The full stature of Leonard Woolf can only be appreciated by an awareness of all his writings and of the influence he exerted in the first half of this century. His book, International Government became one of the formative influences on the League of Nations; through his writings, he became the architect of the Labour Party's often enlightened foreign policy between the Wars; through his literary editorship of the New Statesman and his founding of the Political Quarterly, his integrity and clear thinking were widely manifest. Woolf's excellent judgement as the publisher at the Hogarth Press was no better shown than by his early awareness of the importance of Freud's ideas, whose complete works were published by the Press in translation. This bibliography of all Woolf's publications will certainly increase our appreciation of his abilities both as a writer and thinker. There are four main sections to the bibliography: Books and Pamphlets, Contributions to Books and Pamphlets, Contributions to Periodicals (of which there are approx. 1,000), and Manuscript Collections. There is also a chronology of Woolf's life and main works plus three appendices on various aspects of his writing. Leonard Woolf: A Bibliography will be welcomed by the ever-increasing number of Bloomsbury Group collectors and enthusiasts, as well as librarians and scholars in the field of literature and political history.
