Reader's note

A 1950 edition of The Quest for Corvo by A.J.A. Symons. The all too-short literary career of A.J.A. Symons, who was born in 1900, has left The Quest for Corvo as its most permanent legacy: though in another field he will be long remembered as their co-founder by the grateful members of the Wine and Food society. No short note can do justice to the many interests of the bizarre and baroque figure depicted so amusingly and sympathetically in the biography written in 1950 by his brother, Julian Symons,. They included the collection of musical boxes, the invention of elaborate games, and the study and practice of forgery; they left him time to edit an anthology of verse of the nineties, to write brilliant studied of the explorers Stanley and Emin Pasha, and to the history of the Nonesuch Press. He died at Finchingfield, Essex, 1941.
