George du Maurier

$ 2.99

The caricaturist George du Maurier (grandfather of Daphne du Maurier) is celebrated for his illustrations for ‘Punch’, offering incisive and hilarious commentaries on Victorian society. Du Maurier also wrote three successful novels, including the hugely popular ‘Trilby’, recounting the story of a poor artist’s model transformed into a diva under the spell of Svengali, an evil musical genius. This plot would later inspire Gaston Leroux’s 1910 novel ‘Phantom of the Opera’, as well as countless other tales of the gothic genre. For the first time in publishing history, this eBook presents du Maurier’s complete works, with numerous illustrations, rare texts, informative introductions and the usual bonus material.
