Author Code: OSGX

Born: Apr. 1, 1730 - Zurich, Switzerland

Died: Mar. 2, 1788 - Zurich, Switzerland

Educated in Zurich, Hamburg and Berlin, Gessner began his career as a bookseller in Zurich. An excellent engraver and artist, many of Gessner's publications were richly illustrated with his own etchings. He first came to prominence as a writer in 1751 with the publication of Lied eines Schweizers an sein bewaffnetes Madchen. Best known for his pastoral, idyllic writings and classical landscapes, Gessner's other works included Daphnis (1754), Idyllen (1756), Inkel and Yariko (1756) and Der tod Abels (1758). His works were translated into numerous languages and a collected edition of his works was published in 1778 and again in 1841.
