From The Charleston Bulletin Supplements, dictated by Virginia Woolf to her nephew Quentin Bell when he was a child. Between 1923 and 1927, Bell and his brother Julian hand-produced a “newspaper” for and about their relatives and visitors to their home in East Sussex, England. Woolf’s contributions, referred to within the family as “supplements,” are being published this month for the first time by the British Library.
