This collection includes Rolfe's letters to Fr. C. S. Beauclerk, S.J. written while they both lived in Holywell, to H. C. Bainbridge and Grant Richards while Rolfe lived in London, and to others. There are typescript copies of his letters to R. M. Dawkins, C. Masson Fox, and J. J. Walsh. In the letterbooks of 1909-1910, Rolfe kept copies of his letters sent from Venice to many recipients.
There are also 19 letters from A. J. A. Symons to Grant Richards along with letters received by Symons in preparing his 1934 study of Rolfe, THE QUEST FOR CORVO. There are 33 manuscripts by Rolfe, including parts of his books, IN HIS OWN IMAGE ("More Stories Toto Told Me"), HUBERT'S ARTHUR, and AMICO DI SANDRO, as well as short stories, essays, and poems. Several manuscripts and documents by others concern Rolfe. There are sections of two tree trunks, with carvings by Rolfe, from Seaton House, Aberdeen where he was a tutor from the Hay family. There are also periodical articles and other printed materials by and about Rolfe.
