History

This Berlin firm was founded in 1875, and for its first 25 years of its existence only published the works of a handful of composers, including: Carl Meyer and Carl Schmeidler (1859-1935). After 1900 its catalog widened a little to include August Reinhard (1831-1912, harmonium works), Sigfrid Karg-Elert, and others.

It was finally taken over by Breitkopf und Härtel in 1928.
