Emile Zola (1840-1903) was the most prominent French novelist and short story writer of the late 19th century, was a social activist, and was persecuted for his exposure of the Dreyfus Affair.

Edward Vizetelly (1847-1903) was an English war correspondent and writer, who provided a preface and an afterword for this 1902 translation.

Thérèse Raquin was Zola's third work, published in 1867, and tells of events before and after a man's murder by his wife's lover.

The text was taken from the University of Adelaide ebook library. I have silently corrected typos, curled quotes, replaced diacritics, and made changes to spelling, punctuation, and hyphenation using oxforddictionaries.com.

Version 2 corrects a mistake in the 'About this ebook' section.

Who's the translator? Edward or Ernest Alfred? Or is Edward a mistake? And how did Henry Richard provide material for a translation done after his death?

Sorry I've been so long getting back to you, but it took me a lot of searching.

The author was Edward Vizetelly, (1847-1904). I have been unable to find anything like a biography, or even whether he was part of the Vizetelly family.

He is known to have written several travel books, including The Reminiscences of a Bashi-Bazouk, and there are several references to him being the translator for Therese Raquin.

One of the references I found was

I'll upload version 2 of Therese Raquin within a day or two.

Thanks for drawing the error to my attention.
