Anna Louisa Geertruida Bosboom (1812–1886)

Bosboom, Anna Louisa Geertruida (bos’bōm). A Dutch novelist (1812–86); born (Toussaint) at Alkmaar. Her first work, ‘Almagro,’ was published in 1837. It was followed by a long series of others; but she won no high distinction till 1860, when she published ‘The House of Lauernesse,’ by far her most successful novel, which was translated into several languages. Nearly all her works are historical novels; but toward the end of her life she began to deal with modern society.
