First editions, first impressions, of the complete set of Woolf's collected letters and diaries.

The letters, edited by Nigel Nicolson, record in stunning detail the evolution of Woolf's unmistakable style and provide an impressively comprehensive gathering of her correspondence from childhood until her death in 1941. Woolf's diaries, which she kept from 1915, give an extraordinary picture of literary London in the early 20th century, and are regarded by some as her greatest work.
