Caption: H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925), British author. Henry Rider Haggard is most famous for his adventure novels, mostly set in exotic locations in Africa, including 'King Solomon's Mines' (1885), 'Allan Quatermain' (1887) and 'She' (1887). 'King Solomon's Mines' sold 86 million copies by 1965. Haggard's works also had an enduring influence on later writers. Haggard was also involved in politics with agricultural reform throughout the British Empire. He was knighted in 1912 and made KBE (Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in 1919. This photograph is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries.
