In and out of Africa : The adventures of H. Rider Haggard
This catalogue, and the exhibit it describes, explore the many facets of the life and work of Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925): his work with the English Foreign Office in Africa; his religious journey through belief in spiritualism, Christianity and reincarnation; his non-fiction about the Boer Wars and British Imperial policy, World War I, missionary service and the Salvation Army; his travels; his work on agriculture reform; his friendships with famous literary figures of the time; and his well-known adventure novels. The exhibit features not only the Lilly Library’s collection of Haggard first editions, but also holdings in Africana, and Victorian and Edwardian literature.
