Biography

Collector in Leipzig; his collector's stamp is probably L.895; among his collection were the celebrated anonymous XVc Florentine engravings now known as the 'Otto' prints (Hind 1938 A.IV.1-42). This album came to him from Baron Stosch. Most of the contents were later acquired by the BM when the album was broken up and sold by his heir Klauss Otto in 1852.
