History

The founder of the firm, John L. Peters, son of William Cummings Peters, was a music publisher and dealer in St. Louis and New York between 1851 and 1892, first with A.C. Peters and then with his own firm. one source.

Published several compilations of piano works in subscription/periodical form, e.g. La Crême de la Crême (misspelling theirs), some of which have been scanned in the Library of Congress' American Memory Project.

Note: Not the same as WC Peters of Pittsburgh (of course- though this was probably(?) his father's company, W.C. for William Cummings) (or the same as Edition Peters.)

C.H. Ditson described itself on its covers as Successor to J.L. Peters in 1877, suggesting perhaps that Ditson bought out this firm and thereby obtained a New York branch? (Though J.L. Peters continued to be used as an imprint into the 1880s, perhaps by Ditson. Ditson may only have bought out - if they did at all - the New York branch, which would explain the continued appearance of Peters covers into the 1880s (if this couldn't be explained easily in other ways, as it probably can.) )
