First published in 1894, the story of the diva Trilby O'Ferrall and her mesmeric mentor, Svengali, has entered the mythology of the time alongside Dracula and Sherlock Holmes. Immensely popular on publication, the novel led to a hit play, a series of popular films, and the trilby hat. The setting of the story reflects the author's bohemian years as an art student in Paris; indeed James McNeill Whistler was to recognize himself in one of the early serialized instalments. George du Maurier was a celebrated caricaturist for Punch magazine and his drawings for the novel form part of its appeal-this edition includes his most significant illustrations as well as a fine critical introduction and extensive notes.
