If I understand correctly (and I may be mistaken) she did an initial private print run of 200 copies, and it was only after that that Bloosmbury took it on.

EDIT: A little reading shows that I'm wrong - Bloomsbury were indeed the initial publisher, printing 1000 copies (which are now worth a great deal of money). Thank you for the correction.
