John Jeffrey Farnol was a prolific author of romantic and swashbuckling novels set in the Regency period. With Georgette Heyer, he can be credited with the invention of the Regency romance genre of fiction.
From the album of Miss Evelyn Grey, a young lady who began collecting autographs to pass the time whilst convalescing in hospital during WW1. She seems to have had a particular penchant for novelists as many of the autographs in her album were of popular authors of the day.
