Hill, Octavia.
Thirty Years' Work:
(Privately Printed). Octavia Hill's Letters to Fellow Workers were printed for private circulation to her supporters. She preferred to write to supporters individually, but by the 1870s the scope and scale of her work made this impossible. The importance of the Letters is that they cover the whole range of her activities: housing (including her work for the Ecclesiastical Commissioners), open spaces (including the founding of the National Trust), cultural philanthropy, the Women's University Settlement, the Poor Law Commission and the founding of the Cadets. Octavia disliked publicising her work, except in so far as she had to appeal for funds. The Letters therefore contain detailed information about way in which she handled the various aspects of her work that are not available elsewhere. The volume Thirty Years' Work is a bound collection of all of Octavia Hill's Letters to her Fellow Workers between 1872 (the first letter) and 1900. There are twenty-eight letters as one letter covers 1884 and 1885. All letters contain the accounts for the year apart from that for 1877. Also included in the volume are the two accounts of the Walmer Street Industrial Experiment (1871 & 1872). Copies of the Letters are extremely rare and copies of the reports of the Walmer Street Industrial Experiment even rarer. The letters take the form of simple paper pamphlets of between eight and twenty pages. A number of the letters are inscribed in Octavia's hand to her sister Gertrude who in 1875 had married Charles Lewes, the son of George Henry Lewes and stepson of George Eliot. Page size: 185mm x 120mm. Volume bound in attractive blue boards 190mm x 120mm. Further details and images available on request. Hardback. A small number of sheets - three or four - have become detached from the stitching. Internally, the spine is pulling away / partially detached - otherwise good, in blue boards. pp. Order No. NSBK-C15626
