Biography[ edit ] Corvin was born in Gumbinnen Prussia to the Rittmeister , and later director of the postal administration, of Gumbinnen Friedrich August Heinrich von Corvin-Wiersbitzki. He attended military school in Potsdam and Berlin-Lichterfelde , eventually becoming a lieutenant in the Prussian Army. His novels and dramas did not attract notice, but a book of instruction on swimming — he was very talented in this area having organized the swimming pool at his army post and taught the people there how to dive and swim — was quite popular.
He also founded magazines on outdoor life and horses, the first of their kind in Germany, and they did well. With this success, he was able to marry. His circle of friends crystallized into the first literary club in Germany, and they waged a small war against the police and bureaucracy. An enthusiastic Protestant, he wrote historical studies of which Historische Denkmale des christlichen Fanatismus Historical Monuments to Christian Fanaticism; is a typical title.
This particular book was released in conjunction with the inauguration of the German Catholic movement in Leipzig, and was later republished as Der Pfaffenspiegel  and supplemented by Die Geissler 3d ed.
A political magazine, Die Locomotive, was shut down by the government censors. In search of an effective and cheap reproduction technology for the illustrations in his History, he developed a process eventually called "Corviniello," later fine-tuned while he was in prison, which became widely used. In , he fought in the barricades in the French uprising. The French provisional government then offered him generous support for democratic uprisings in Germany, however his offer to the Frankfurt parliament to form a national army was sharply rebuffed.
In , after participating in the Berlin uprising, he took part in the Baden revolt, first as a colonel of militia under Mieroslawski in Mannheim , then as chief of the general staff in Rastatt. In in Soden, he finished the memoirs of his prison experience. An attempted return to Germany at Hamburg was frustrated by police chicanery, and he returned to London, his memoirs finally being published in in Amsterdam.
His experiences are described in his book In France with the Germans In , he founded an association of German writers in Leipzig. He died in in Wiesbaden.
Otto von Corvin: Pfaffenspiegel. Die Erstauflage des Pfaffenspiegel erschien Auch aus den Vorreden und der Einleitung des Verfassers wurden einige belanglose Stellen weggelassen. Wieso nun diese Stellen als belanglos angesehen wurden, ist mir nicht klar.
