Shown is an excelsior, i.e. the wPb2 moves in 5 steps to b8 where it underpromotes to a wN delivering mate to the bK on c6. This was published two years earlier than Sam Loyd's famous problem (London Era, 1861) that created the name, see the article "Excelsior" on wikipedia en for background information.

No data found on the composer.
