Of course, it wasn’t all just men at fault in this. There had been women writing books long before this. That didn’t change the fact that the craft was male-dominated. But that status quo was mostly by choice. On both sides. The circle needed to be broken. To start this process, Woolf used to invitation "to speak on the topic of 'women and fiction'" to give a series of lectures a Newnham and Girton Colleges (part of Cambridge University) in October 1928. Published a year later, this book's title is an argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by men.

Of course, it wasn’t all just men at fault in this. There had been women writing books long before this. That didn’t change the fact that the craft was male-dominated.

It is only then that a writer (regardless of sex) would find their true voice. It is also a very inspiring book for any aspiring writer to read. Scroll up to get your copy now.< Less

The first comprehensive handbook on the seeds of trees and shrubs produced by the USDA Forest Service was USDA Misc. Pub. 654, Woody-Plant Seed Manual. The manuscript was ready for publication in... More > 1941, but World War II delayed publication until 1948. The boom in tree planting in the 1950s and 1960s created a large demand for seeds and exposed the gaps in our knowledge concerning production and quality of seeds of woody plants in general. The 1974 Handbook proved to be very popular both in this country and abroad, leading to five printings and translations in several other languages. More than a quarter-century after its publication, however, numerous advances in tree seed technology have dictated that a new revision is needed; the result is the current volume. Part I contains information on how to get seeds and raise seedlings.< Less
