Leonard Woolf (1880 – 1969) was a noted British political theorist, author, publisher of The Hogarth Press, and civil servant. A leading member of the Bloomsbury Circle, he was married to author Virginia Woolf.

SUPERIOR COPIES of these important initial autobiographical volumes with TYPED LETTER of Transmittal SIGNED by Leonard Woolf, dated 27 Dec. 1967: Tight, bright, clean in NF dust jackets (unclipped; slightly age-toned) with minimal wear: Vol. 1 has a tiny chip at the head of its spine, and Vol. 2 has a small triangular chip lost from the inside lower edge of its front panel. Luedeking & Edmonds A38a, etc.

These three autobiographical installments were succeeded by: (1967). Downhill All the Way: An Autobiography of the Years 1919–1939; and (1969). The Journey Not the Arrival Matters: An Autobiography of the Years 1939–1969. London: Hogarth Press. ISBN 978-0-7012-0326-9. (In 1963, LW also wrote Diaries in Ceylon, 1908–1911 and Stories from the East: Records of a Colonial Administrator.)

Previous single owner's ink name neatly written on front pastedown of each volume. She is the same person who was sent the accompanying typed personal note SIGNED by Leonard Woolf. It would appear that these three volumes had been sent to said owner (and her husband--both Virginia Woolf devotees) by The Hogarth Press, and that LW had separately sent the lady and her husband his note of thanks.
