Sarah Austin, an English authoress, born in 1793, died at Weybridge, Aug. 8, 1867. She was one of the famous Taylor family of Norwich, and the wife of Mr. John Austin, a London barrister. Her reputation rests upon the unusual ability of her translations from German authors. Her first and most remarkable achievement in this kind was her version of the travels of Prince Piickler-Muskau, published under the title of "The Travels of a German Prince in England." The idiomatic painting and fluent ease of this translation were so admirable that for a long time it was difficult to persuade many persons that the work was not the composition of an English author. The first work which Mrs. Austin gave to the world under her own name was a translation of Falk's "Characteristics of Goethe" (1833), with many additions by herself. This book won an immediate and deserved success. She afterward published translations of Carove's "Story without an End," and Ranke's "History of the Popes," a "Collection of Fragments from the German Prose Writers," an excellent treatise on "Education," and "Sketches of Germany from 1760 to 1814."
