The Bull Against the Enemy of the Anglican Race is one of the rarer of the early Rolfe pieces. It was originally printed in 1929, edited by A J A Symons from two MSS. "This Bull is a violent attack upon Lord Northcliffe and The Daily Mail, written by Rolfe in his self-imagined role of Pope Hadrian VII." 50 copies were printed and distributed on 27th june 1929 at the first dinner held by the Corvine Society at The Ambassador Club in London.
The photo above is of the copy which once belonged to Shane Leslie and is heartily inscribed to him by A J A Symons.
Given the rareity of the item, of course my eyes widened when I saw the other day, across a tumbling pile of books in a rambling old bookshop, the same black and white patterned paper. I rushed over, only to discover that it was, in fact, being used on a fairly ordinary book of music, Russian songs in fact, published in the US. Woolf, in his bibliography of Rolfe, doesn't say anything about the origin of the paper used as wrappers on The Bull but it would be nice, to find out where is came from if possible.
