About the Author

George du Maurier, in full George Louis Palmella Busson du Maurier (born March 6, 1834, Paris, France-died Oct. 6, 1896, London, Eng.), British caricaturist whose illustrations for Punch were acute commentaries on the Victorian scene. He also wrote three successful novels.

Du Maurier's happy childhood at Passy, France, is recalled in Peter Ibbetson (1891), and his full-blooded enjoyment of student life in the Latin Quarter of Paris is reflected in Trilby (1894). In The Martian (1897) there is a poignant episode based on his own tragic experience of losing the sight of his left eye.
