March 21st., 1951" A very good copy lacking the dustwrapper & showing light general use. There is some spotting to some of the front & back pages, the spine is slightly yellowed & there is a chip to the paper spine label which is mildly tanned. Provenance: Ex Libris; Dr. Frances Elinor Rendel & Acquired from the library of Victoria Strachey & Mark Holloway. [Lytton Strachey was Victoria Strachey's great uncle] - Dr. F.E. Rendel, to whom this letter is inscribed by Virginia Woolf, was Doctor Frances Elinor Rendel (1885 - 1942), the daughter of Lytton Strachey's Eldest sister Eleanor, & was known as Ellie Rendel. At some point in 1924, Dr. F.E. Rendel became the London doctor of Virginia Woolf, Roger Fry & the Bells (Vanessa & Clive). Vanessa Bell writes in a letter to Virginia Woolf of April 23rd. 1927:- "Roger [Fry] comes tomorrow. He was to have come before, but it seems that Ellie [Rendel] nearly killed him, like you, with her new brand of inoculations, and he couldn't start as he meant to." Dr. F.E. Rendel was the doctor treating Virginia Woolf at the very end of her life. Bookseller Inventory # 32468
