Robert van Gulik (1910-1967) was born in Holland in 1910

but grew up in Java. Van Gulik was a highly educated

authority on Chinese history and culture, diplomat, musician

and writer who is best known for his Judge Dee mystery

series. As a researcher van Gulik studied esoteric Buddhism

and translated ancient texts, including a Chinese 18th century

detective novel. This Chinese mystery novel was based in

turn on the well known historically real Chinese magistrate

Judge Dee who lived in the 7th century CE. Using the three

stories from this original source as a stepping stone,

van Gulik developed his own series of historical mysteries

set in 7th century China featuring additional

adventures of Judge Dee.
