1912. Autographed card, mounted below captioned black and white post-card sized photograph of the author. Boldly signed in black ink. Fine condition, in common mount with colour wash and trim, framed and glazed. Haggard was a British Victorian writer of popular adventure novels set in exotic locations, and creator of Allan Quatermain, the protagonist of the novel 'King Solomon's Mines' (1885) and its various sequels and prequels. Quatermain was an English-born professional big game hunter and occasional trader in southern Africa, one of the most famous gentlemen adventurer/explorers in all fiction. Haggard was instrumental in developing the conventions of the Lost World sub-genre, which many other authors emulated, and is also remembered for his series of strange and dark novels concerning Ayesha, a beautiful and apparently immortal sorceress who first appeared in 'She' (1887).
