1894. With illustrations by the author. Artist and writer, Trilby is his best remembered work. The novel begins: It was a fine, sunny, showery day in April. The big studio window was open at the top, and let in a pleasant breeze from the northwest. Things were beginning to look shipshape at last. The big piano, a semi-grand by Broadwood, had arrived from England by the Little Quickness (la Petite Vitesse, as the good trains are called in France), and lay, freshly tuned, alongside the eastern wall; on the wall opposite was a panoply of foils, masks, and boxing gloves.
Illustrator and novelist George du Maurier was born on March 6, 1834 in Paris. He studied art in France and Germany before moving to London where he established himself as an illustrator. His work appeared in the Cornhill Magazine and the Illustrated Times and in 1864 he joined the staff of Punch. He also wrote and illustrated three novels, including the best-selling Trilby. He died in 1896.
