              Adelbert von Chamisso (1781 A-1838) was a German poet and botanist. In 1796 his family was forced to leave France. They settled in Berlin where Chamisso became a page-in-waiting to the queen. He later joined the Prussian infantry. Peter Schlemihl is the story of a man who sells h...is shadow to the Devil for an always full wallet. He then finds out that a man without a shadow is shunned by society. The woman he loves rejects him, and he spends the rest of his life wandering the world in scientific exploration. The Yiddish word Schlemiel means a hopelessly incompetent person, a bungler. The name is a synonym for one who makes a desperate or silly bargain

              Peter Schlemihl one of the pleasantest fancies of the days when Germany delighted in romance, was first published in 1814, and was especially naturalised in England by association with the genius of George Cruikshank, who enriched a translation of it with some of his happiest wor...k as an illustrator. An account of the book and its author is here reprinted at the end of the tale, as originally given by the translator. To this account one or two notes may be added. Louis Charles Adelaide de Chamisso de Boncourt was born on the 27th of January, 1781, at the Chateau of Boncourt, in Champagne, which he made the subject of one of his most beautiful lyrics. He belonged to a family faithful to Louis XVI., that fled to Wurzburg from the fury of the French Revolution. Thus he was taken to Germany a child of nine, and was left there when the family, with other emigrants, returned to France in 1801. At fifteen he had Teutonised his name to Adelbert von Chamisso, and was appointed page to the Queen of Prussia.In the war that came afterwards, for a very short time he bore arms against the French, but being one of a garrison taken in the captured fort of Hamlin, he and his comrades had to pledge their honour that they would not again bear arms against France during that war. After the war he visited France..."
