Notes

First edition, first impression, one of 1,000 copies of this only collection of short stories to be published in Woolf's lifetime, and an early Hogarth Press production. Leonard Woolf stated that the work "was printed by F. T. McDermott of the Prompt Press, Richmond, who used to give him advice on printing problems when he and Mrs. Woolf first started the Hogarth Press" (Kirkpatrick). Woolf was concerned about the quality of Monday or Tuesday and what its critical reception would be, and wrote in her diary on 6 March 1921 that "Nessa approves of Monday or Tuesday-mercifully; & thus somewhat redeems it in my eyes".
