An edited transcription of the holograph British Museum manuscript of Virginia Woolf's 1925 novel Mrs. Dalloway, The Hours was Woolf's early title for the novel. This transcription reproduces Woolf's creative process in great detail, showing every revision and emendation.

A transcription of the three holograph notebooks in the British Library, the volume includes an introduction and appendixes that transcribe additional relevant material from the Berg collection.

"Helen M. Wussow's scrupulous transcription of the manuscript versions of Mrs. Dalloway will unquestionably enhance our understanding of this modernist novel. Wussow brings out temporal and spatial dimensions not just of the finished novel that The Hours became but also of Virginia Woolf's creative processes. The transcription shows just how illuminating modern manuscripts can be."
