Edward Verrall Lucas

Lucas, Edward Verrall, 1868–1938, English author and critic. For several years he was assistant editor of Punch. He wrote many volumes of gently satirical essays and travel books, including Old Lamps for New (1911), Saunterer's Rewards (1933), and Only the Other Day (1936). He is chiefly remembered, however, for his biography of Charles Lamb (1905) and his collection of the letters of Charles and Mary Lamb (1903–5). Of his several novels, Over Bemerton (1908) is considered his best.

See biography by his daughter Audrey Lucas (1939, repr. 1969).
