English novelist and critic.
Typewritten Letter Signed, one page, octavo, Tavistock Square, December 9, 1928. To [André] Chaumeix, the editor of Le Figaro.
…I heard from Miss Halford and told her that I should be ready to give the French rights of my articles from time to time to the Figaro on the terms that you suggest. I am afraid that I cannot write one in December, but probably I could send you one in January. It would be from 1500 to 2000 words and it would appear in England and in America at the same time. Would it be time if I sent the manuscript to the Figaro about a fortnight before publication?
Virginia Woolf contributed a number of articles to Le Figaro from 1929 to 1931, beginning with Quand on ne sait pas le français [a translation of On not knowing French], which appeared on February 10, 1929. Fine condition.
Framed in pearl gray and violet, with a famous image of the young author Virginia Woolf with her hair pulled back. In a carved silver-gilt frame measuring 16 inches wide by 13 inches high.
