Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, or better known as Anthony Hope (1863-1933) was an English novelist and playwright, author of his world famous novels The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). Set in the fictional country of Ruitania, these minor English classics helped spawn the genre known as Ruritanian romance, which include works by Georges Remi (The Adventures of Tintin) and Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Lost Prince). While mainly known for Zenda, Hawkins was a prolific writer of over 35 volumes of fictional work, establishing a large fan base throughout England during his lifetime. His notoriety earned him a job as a propaganda writer for England during World War I, for which he was knighted in 1918. Toned. Creased throughout. Signature faded. Soiled. Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
