Leonard Woolf presented the original manuscript of A Room of One’s Own to the Fitzwilliam in 1942. We are doing a Persephone edition next year, to mark the ninety years since its first publication. And have been discussing with Clara Jones, who is writing the Preface, whether we should re-set or use a facsimile of the first edition. We have decided on the latter, partly because the proof reading would be a bit nightmarish. But are hoping to reproduce some of the original handwriting.
