Sir Anthony Hope Hawkins, better known as Anthony Hope was born February 9, 1863 – died July 8, July 1933. Hawkins was an English novelist and playwright. Although he was a prolific writer, especially of adventure novels, he is remembered best for only two books: The Prisoner of Zenda (1894) and its sequel Rupert of Hentzau (1898). These works, “minor classics” of English literature, are set in the contemporaneous fictional country of Ruritania and spawned the genre known as Ruritanian romance. Zenda has inspired many adaptations, most notably the 1937 Hollywood movie of the same name. Original Anthony Hope Hawkins Autograph, signed on a Fly Leaf. Approx. size: 7 1/4 inch x 4 7/8 inch.
