Three Boys' Authors
George Manville Fenn, G. A. Henty & H. Rider Haggard

This booklet contains contemporary interviews with three authors who, between them, produced the most popular boys' fiction of their age and made a huge impact on the young men of an entire century.

Orginally published in a Boys' Magazine at the end of the nineteenth century, it is extremely unusual to find interviews of this sort at this time, the cult of celebrity as we know it now being only in its infancy. Each author is asked about their life, their books and writing methods and about their contact with their readership and letters they have received from boys who have read their work. A fascinating and probably unique insight into the lives of these authors.

22pp. sewn into card covers. Protected in glassine wrappers. Edition limited to 50 numbered copies.
