Why We Love This

The Quest For Corvo, by A. J. A. Symons. London: The Folio Society, 1952. First printing thus. A famous biography of the mysteriously self-styled Baron Corvo, a.k.a. Frederick Rolfe, which first appeared in 1934. This attractive Folio Society edition, issued without a jacket, continues the attempt to unravel one of the most curious literary lives of the last century, as well as being "an experiment in biography" itself.
