He is unequalled as an observer of the Raj and as a commentator on the duties and obligations of empire. Later in life he settled in Sussex, from which he drew the inspiration for Puck of Pook's Hill, 1906, and Rewards and Fairies, 1910, as well as some of his finest late stories. Long out of favour because of the imperial themes in his work, he is now recognized as one of the major talents of his time. Stamped 'Specimen' upper right.
