Pre-Order: Frederick Rolfe Centenary Catalogue

You cannot possibly be a regular reader of this blog without knowing of our regard for Frederick Rolfe Baron Corvo and this Saturday past was the 100th anniversary of the Baron's death in Venice. Next week Callum James Books will issue a new catalogue entitled, "Baron Corvo: One Hundred Items from the Collection of Robert Scoble".
If you are on our mailing list, you will already know about this. If you are on our mailing list you will be sent a link to the electronic download of the catalogue about 24 hours before that link is published on this blog next week. If you would like to be on the mailing list to have a chance for first pickings then please simply drop me an email as soon as you can. There really is something for everyone in the list with the items split into two sections: Rolfe's own writings followed by books and ephemera relating to Rolfe. Many of the items have an association with leading figures in the posthumous cult that Rolfe generated throughout the 20th century.

As well as an electronic version of the catalogue, as a permanent record of a collection 40 years in the making and as a contribution to Corvine bibliography, we have produced the 120pp. catalogue as a quarto paperback in a limited and numbered edition of 50 copies signed by both the bookseller and the collector. If you would like to pre-order a limited edition hardcopy of the catalogue for your collection please send 24.00GBP plus the appropriate postage (i.e. 3.00GBP for the UK: 5.00GBP for European countries: 7.00 for everywhere else) to If required for your records I can send an invoice via paypal. The hard copies will be also be sent out next week but if you hope to order from the catalogue you should be on the email mailing list for the quickest access and await your real-world copy in the post.
