About the Author

Sir Henry Rider Haggard (1856-1925) was an English author of adventure novels set in exotic locales, predominantly Africa. King Solomon’s Mines, one of his best-known books, details the life of the explorer Allan Quartermain. She: A History of Adventure followed, introducing the character Ayesha. While much of Haggard’s reputation stems from those two books and their subsequent series, he also wrote nonfiction and short stories.

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on libraryshelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project to makethe world's books discoverable online. It has survived long enough for thecopyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domainbook is one that was never subject to copyright or whose legal copyright termhas expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country tocountry. Public domain books are our gateways to the past, representing awealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover.Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume may appearin this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the publisher to alibrary and finally to you.

Imperfect OCR is only the first challenge in the ultimate goalof moving from collections of page images to extracted-text based books. Ourcomputer algorithms also have to automatically determine the structure of thebook (what are the headers and footers, where images are placed, whether textis verse or prose, and so forth). Getting this rightallows us to render thebook in a way that follows the format of the original book. Despite our best ...
