HOLITSCHER, PHILIP:

Hungarian land holder and author; born in Budapest Aug. 19, 1822. His parents destined him for a mercantile career, and in 1842 he took over his father's factory. He retired, however, from business about thirty years later, and since then has lived on his estate in Alag, devoting himself to economic questions. Under the name of "Fidelius" he wrote a work on political economy entitled "Die Oesterreichische Nationalbank und Ihr Einfluss auf die Wirtschaftlichen Verhältnisse der Monarchie" (Vienna, 1875). He wrote also: "Im Banne Fortunas," a romance (Budapest, 1882); "Erzählungen" (1884); "Gedanken und Gestalten," poems (Breslau, 1887); "Skanderbeg," a drama (ib. 1890); "Carols Weltreisen und Abentheuer" (Stuttgart, 1892); "Der Letzte König von Polen," a drama (ib. 1893); "Splitter und Balken," poems (ib. 1895); "Neues Leben" (ib. 1895).
