Educated in Magdeburg, Lindau came from a family that was well-represented in literature with both his brother Paul, a leading German dramatist, and his sister Anna being authors of repute. Lindau travelled much in the Far East and represented Switzerland on a trade mission to Japan in 1859 and to China in 1861. He resided in China, England and the United States as well as his home country of Germany. Because of his Oriental experiences, many of his works deal with the residents of that area. His novels and tales were collected in six volumes in Berlin in 1893. His works include The Philosopher's Pendulum (1878), The Seer (1878), Liquidated (1878), Gordon Baldwin (1878) and From China and Japan (1896).
