First Edition, 1969. "George Louis Palmella Busson du Maurier (1834-1896) was a French-born British cartoonist and author, known for his cartoons in Punch and also for his novel Trilby. Here is a splendid canvas from the nineteenth century. A critical biography of the Victorian cartoonist, this volume traces his career, from a penurious and rootless childhood through to final success as the author of a best-seller. Along with a discussion of his friendships with both James A. Whistler and Henry James, the book devotes a section to a study of the social world of Du Maurier's Punch cartoons, and to his delightful "aesthetic' series parodying the lily-bearing followers of Oscar Wilde. Du Maurier is shown in his study against the background of the Victorian cultural milieu, and, with his concealed tensions, his sense of frustrated talent, his evasion of the social round in his retreat to Hampstead, he stands out as a courageous and often moving figure." from the jacket flap.
