This publisher in Bayreuth, Bavaria has operated since 1863, though it was very quiet until 1890: HMB records 6 items in 1863 to 1890 but 160 in the 1890s. It published a wide range of items in most genres, including some works for harp and horn. The main composers before 1900 were Wilhelm Kienzl, August Klughardt, and Ernst Stahl. It also published Wagneriana such as Bayreuth: ein Wegweiser durch die Stadt... (1889).
