  • "Jacob's Room was an important milepost for the press....It was Woolf's longest book published to date, it was the first novel, and it was one of the first books to be printed by R. & R. Clark of Edinburgh, thus initiating a long and fruitful association between publisher and printer....Most important, [it] marked Virginia's complete break from Duckworth into the freedom of self-editing and self-publishing"--J.H. Willis, Leonard and Virginia Woolf as publishers: The Hogarth Press, 1917-41. Charlottesville: University Press of Virginia, 1992, page 60
