The Cloak That I Left

A Biography of the Author Henry Rider Haggard K.B.E. by his daughter

by Lilias Rider Haggard

Hodder and Stoughton, 1951, [Second Impressions], black and white photographic plates, decorated endpapers, illustrated frontispiece, coloured tipped (red) top fore edge, hardcover

“This biography is compiled almost entirely from my father’s letters, notebooks, and diaries.  I am, however, indebted to Messrs. Longmans, Green and Co. Ltd. For allowing me to quote from his books, and particularly form his autobiography, The Days of My Life.  Also I must acknowledge the kindness of Mrs. Bambridge for letting me use letters from her father, Rudyard Kipling; and of Mrs John Haggard for permission to print her poems.”
