Kürnberger, Ferdinand (kürn’bãrg-er). A German novelist; born at Vienna, July 3, 1821; died at Munich, Oct. 14, 1879. His first novel, ‘Tired of America’ (1856), was his most popular one: it described the American civilization of that period as merely material. Of several volumes of tales, ‘Selected Tales’ (1857) contained his best work. Others of his writings were: the drama ‘Catiline’ (1855); the volume of essays ‘Seal Rings’ (1874); the romance ‘The Despot of the House’ (1876); ‘Literary Affairs of the Heart’ (1877).
