More Information
Ronald Firbank, born 1886 - 1926 was a somewhat eccentric author with a colourful private life. He combined a life of decadence with his religion, Roman Catholic, something which returns time and again in his books. His work is said to have been a huge influence on the likes of Evelyn Waugh and Anthony Powell et al.

He is, it is fair to say, slightly out of favour now, possibly unfairly so given his influence. That said, he has left a legacy and is collectable with none of the books listed in our bibliography-checklist being without some collectable value.
If you are looking to buy or sell rare books then our find a bookseller section may be of some assistance.
