Karl Eduard von Bülow (1803–1853)

Bülow, Karl Eduard von (bü’lō). A German story-teller (1803–53); born at Berg vor Eilenburg in Saxony. His literary fame rests mainly on his ‘Book of Tales,’ after ancient Italian, Spanish, French, English, Latin, and German originals (4 vols., 1834–36), which was followed by a supplementary volume. Of his own original compositions, the ‘Springtide Wandering among the Harz Mountains’ is one of the best. He wrote also the very interesting story of ‘The Youth of a Poor Man of Toggenburg,’ founded on the autobiography of Ulrich Brüker, a Swiss weaver. He published the original later.
