Autograph letter signed
1919. WOOLF, Virginia. Autograph letter signed. Fitzroy Square: circa 1907. One sheet of Woolf's ""29, Fitzroy Square, W."" letterhead, measuring 4 by 6 inches, writing on recto. $4500.Autograph letter signed by Virginia Woolf to her brother-in-law Clive Bell.This letter was written by Woolf, using her maiden name, to art critic Clive Bell, who married her sister Vanessa in 1907. Although the Bells had separated within a decade, they never formally divorced, and often spent time together; Vanessa's daughter with the artist Duncan Grant was raised by Clive as his own, and he would often visit with them at the farmhouse they shared. The letter, sent from Fitzroy Square, where Virginia moved with her brother Adrian in 1907, reads in full: ""Dear Clive, There is nothing much in this, but I sent it partly to show my sense of gratitude and for your services with my box and to supplicate that the novel I left behind may be sent and to thank also for my entertainment at your hands, and those of my great mistress [Vanessa Bell]. I was very happy. VAS."" Faint fold line. A fine autograph letter.
