Overview

Hogarth Press


Quick Reference

Was founded in 1917 by L. and V. Woolf at their home, Hogarth House, Richmond, and their earliest publications included K. Mansfield's Prelude (1918), V. Woolf's Kew Gardens (1919, illustrated with woodcuts by Vanessa Bell), and T. S. Eliot's Poems (1919). Their policy was to publish new and experimental work; they also published translations of Gorky, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Bunin, Rilke, and Svevo. In 1924 they moved to Tavistock Square, where J. Lehmann became part‐owner (1938–46). The present Hogarth Press has been an allied company of Chatto and Windus since 1947.
