More Information
H Rider Haggard, born 1856 to 1925, was a British author renowned for his heroic characters and adventurous books. His most famous titles are known to most. Even those uninterested in literature could not have missed the various film and television adaptations over the years. The first editions are extremely collectable today with pre 1900 titles being rare and valuable. The later titles tend to cost less than one might suppose, due largely to Haggard's great popularity the print runs were considerable. In most cases the English editions precede their American counterparts and tend to be more desirable, in terms of collectability and consequently value. The books were reprinted constantly, some showing few differences from the original first impression. We have listed the main issue points that we are aware of.
