1 3532 WOOLF] NUNEZ, Sigrid Mitz : The Marmoset of Bloomsbury
Hardcover HarperFlamingo: 1998; First US Edition Very Good+ in Near Fine dust wrapper  
114 pages; A new book with black remainder mark on top edge.; 'In the summer of 1934, "a sickly pathetic marmoset" called Mitz came into the care of Leonard Woolf. He nursed her back to health and from then on was rarely seen without her on his shoulder. A "ubiquitous" presence in Bloomsbury society, Mitz moved with the Woolfs between their London flat and their cottage in Sussex. She developed her own special relationships with the Woolfs' spaniels, Pinka and Sally, and with various members of the Woolfs' circle, such as T.S. Eliot and Vita Sackville-West. She accompanied the Woolfs on their holidays, including their travels through Europe, and played an important role in helping them to escape a close call with Nazis in Germany. Using letters, diaries, and memoirs, Nunez reconstructs Mitz's life against the background of Bloomsbury in its twilight years. Although a turbulent period marked by the threat of war, the deaths of beloved friends and relations, and Virginia's near breakdown under the strain of finishing her novel The Years, it was nevertheless a time of much happiness and productivity for the Woolfs. Tender, affectionate, and humorous, 'Mitz' provides a glimpse of what Virginia Woolf once described as "the private side of life - the play side", which she believed one's pets represented.' ; Published @ $18.00.
