The author: Ferguson Wright Hume (8 July 1859 – 12 July 1932), known as Fergus Hume, was a prolific English novelist.
The illustrator: Maria Louise Kirk (1860-1930) was born in Lancaster, Pennslyania, on 21st June, 1860. Despite being a prolific and highly talented illustrator, very little is known about her life.She studied art in Philadelphia – at the School of Design for Women, and the Academy of Fine Arts. These schools were well-respected in the area, and Kirk exhibited broadly in her home-state. She consequently won awards in both Phladelphia and Chicago, and illustrated over fifty books during the course of her lifetime.
