Garnett, David

"Bunny" Garnett (1892-1981), writer, editor and publisher, was educated at University College School and the Royal College of Science, South Kensington, where he studied botany. After the war he opened a bookshop in Bloomsbury, and became associated with the Bloomsbury Group. He was involved in two successful publishing ventures, the Nonesuch Press (1923) and Rupert Hart-Davis Ltd. (1946). His first serious novel, Lady into Fox, was published in 1922; several others followed. He founded the Cranium Club, of which Harrod and several Bloomsbury figures were members.
