F. Anstey, "the pseudonym of Thomas Anstey Guthrie (1856-1934), author of novels of fantasy and humor and of innumerable comic sketches and stories … His long association with Punch, beginning in 1886, encouraged his skill in parody and burlesque; his series of Voces Populi, Mr. Punch's Pocket Ibsen, and many others became very popular ."
