Carl Herloszsohn (1804–1849)

Herloszsohn, Carl (her’los-ōn). A German novelist; born in Prague, Sept. 1, 1804; died at Leipzig, Dec. 10, 1849. He plunged into story-writing at an early age, founding also a periodical, The Comet, that continued from 1830 to 1848. The best among his numerous novels are: ‘The Venetians’; ‘Wallenstein’s First Love’; and ‘Christmas Tales.’ Financial reverses overtook him, his paper suspended, and he died, at a comparatively early age, in a public hospital, poor and friendless.
