Austrian author; born in Vienna March 21, 1818; died at Salzburg in 1888. After leaving the University of Vienna in 1844 he entered the field of journalism, in which his influence helped to establish a more liberal régime. He founded several journals, including "Das Wiener Feuilleton" (1853; belles-lettres), "Der Komet" (Vienna, 1853; humor), and "Die Komische Welt," edited the comic album "Brausepulver" (Vienna and Leipsic, 1847 and 1848), and wrote for "Fliegende Blätter," "Ueber Land und Meer" ("Wiener Croquis," a humorous chronicle of Vienna life), "Bauerle's Theaterzeitung "(letters of travel from 1855), and other publications.
