Comment on Dying Lion (The Lucerne Lion)

The citation follows Liebenau, op. cit., p. 45, where the writer is identified simply as a Lucerne jurist. Though the jurist goes unnamed in Liebenau’s book, a later article by the editors of the journal Alpina states that this is presumably a reference to Prof. Dr. Troxler, who taught at the Lucern Lyceum. Cf. “Das L√∂wendenkmal zu Luzern,” Alpina, vol. 65, no. 5 (May 1939), p. 138.
