POSNER, KARL LUDWIG VON:
Hungarian manufacturer; born 1822; died 1887 at Budapest. In 1852 he founded the largest printing, lithographing, and bookbinding establishment in Hungary; and he was sent by his government as a commissioner to the expositions of London (1871), Vienna (1878), and Triest (1882). In 1884 he was empowered by Trefort, the minister of education, to introduce the reproduction of maps into Hungary; and that country is greatly indebted to him in connection with the graphic arts and the paper industry. King Francis Joseph I. ennobled him in 1873, and bestowed upon him the title of royal councilor in 1885. His work is successfully carried on by his son Alfred.
