Donald Weeks' biographical study of Frederick Rolfe
First edition. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 450pp.
On the extreme outer fringes of the faddish Anglo-Catholicism of the 1890s, Frederick Rolfe is surely one of the most singular and enigmatic personalities in English letters. Weeks, an avid collector of Rolfe's letters, photographs and drawings, picks up the baton from AJA Symons' The Quest for Corvo and ventures even deeper into the legend and life of the misanthropic author.
A good copy. The book is in sound shape, with a few spots of foxing to the page edges. The dustwrapper is also good, with some overall age-related wear.
