F[rancis] Bancroft [pseud Frances Charlotte Slater]

Frances Charlotte Slater (1862-1947) was a South African who wrote 18 romantic novels under the pseudonym 'F. Bancroft' between 1906 and 1933, many set in the Eastern Cape.

This dust jacket might be by Blampied, because the horse is well drawn and he liked to use what he called 'notes' of colour, such as the red on the woman's hat and cardigan. But I could be wrong. Please let me know if you have a copy with the whole jacket, here.
