Executive summary: The Cardinal's Snuff-box

American novelist, born in New York City (not St. Petersburg, Russia), in March 1861, and was educated in New York and at Harvard. He went to Europe as a journalist and, after publishing several novels, mainly of American-Jewish, life (under the name of Sidney Luska), first made his literary reputation in London as editor of the Yellow Book in 1894, illustrated by Aubrey Beardsley. His association with this clever publication, and his own contributions to it, brought his name into prominence, but it was not until he published The Cardinal's Snuff-box (1900), followed by The Lady Paramount (1902), that his lightly humorous touch and picturesque style as a novelist brought him any real success. His health was always delicate, and he died at San Remo on the 20th of December 1905.
