LINDAU, Paul, a German jour- nalist and author, born at Magde- burg, June 3, 1839, received his early education in the gymnasium

of his native city, and continued his studies at Halle, Leipzig, and Berlin, paying special attention to philosophy and the history of literature. After the termination of his academical career he spent several years at Paris with the view of acquiring, at the fountain- head, a thorough acquaintance with the early, as well as the mo- dem, literature of France.
