F. Ries of Dresden, founded by Franz Ries (1846–1932), operated from 1875 to 1881. It published serious works by Lachner, Reinecke, Raff, Wichmann, Thieriot, Huber, and the Ries family- Hubert (1802-1886) and Franz. In 1881 Ries joined forces with Hermann Erler, who had managed his own publishing house since 1873, producing many of Hubert Ries's works, to form Ries & Erler, which has survived to the present.
