Lance Thackeray (1869 - 1916) 

Lot "Lance" Thackeray (1869–1916) was an English illustrator, known especially for his comic sporting illustrations involving billiards and golf and for his many humorous postcards.

He was born in Darlington to Thomas Thackeray and Selina Neish. He was a founding member of the London Sketch Club. When he was over 30 he spent some winters in Egypt and produced humorous sketches which he collected in The Light Side of Egypt (1908). Thackeray drew the designs for over 950 postcard prints, mostly comic, and made a great number of illustrations for the humorous Press in England. At the beginning of World War I, despite being over 40, he volunteered for the Artists Rifles. He died in Brighton after a long illness.
