Presentation copy, inscribed by the author "To Oliver Lodge, from H. Rider Haggard, Ditchingham, 14th Oct: 1911" on the verso of the half-title. Oliver Lodge was a noted physicist who made important contributions to the study of electricity and radio waves though became increasingly discredited as a scientist through his stubborn advocacy of the ether theory, and in particular "through its application in his later books to psychical matters and to the spiritualism with which this had become increasingly associated" (ODNB). He eventually became President of the Society for Psychical Research and found a friend in Rider Haggard, who "more than dabbled in spiritualism, believed in reincarnation, and sought answers to the meaning of life in the world's ancient myths" (idem). Ditchingham was the Norfolk family estate of Rider Haggard's wife, Louisa Magritson, and though the couple were married in 1880, it was only with the publication of She in 1887 that the author was able to buy out the tenants and make Ditchingham his home until his death in 1925.
