And by 1907, about 50 selections into the book, Woolf has all but dropped the Guardian, and is doing longer pieces for the Times, and is coming into her prime.

Andrew McNeillie, the editor of her collected essays, kind of knows how to end an essay. He’s the one behind the copious footnotes supplementing each of Woolf’s essays, which sometimes provide invaluable information about what the hell Woolf is talking about but which mostly give the birth and death dates of every single person Woolf mentions, just in case you need to know when George Borrow, author of Lavengro (1851), The Romany Rye (1857), Wild Wales (1862), and other books, died, which was in 1881, a year that is the same whether you write it forwards or backwards!

One final footnote intrigues me. In a 1920 book review, Woolf discusses the National Gallery and to the National Portrait Gallery. She relates one particularly puzzling incident. Hoping to find a portrait of John Stuart Mill’s wife, Woolf decided that this was something “that, no doubt, the National Portrait Gallery could supply… But the National Portrait Gallery, interrogated, wished to be satisfied that the inquirer was dependent upon a soldier; pensions they provided, not portraits; and thus set adrift in Trafalgar Square once more the student might reflect upon the paramount importance of faces.” This is accompanied by another McNeillie footnote, which reads:

Now we are to get the rest. Andrew McNeillie has edited all of Virginia Woolf's nonfiction newspaper and magazine pieces that he was able to trace, in a collection that will come to six volumes.
