This firm operated in Wilna, Russian Empire (now Vilnius, Lithuania) from 1820. It published mainly books, but HMB shows that it published a few scores in 1856-63, mainly by Moniuszko, Poland's favorite composer in the second half of the 19th century. Another office of this firm existed in Kiev from 1851 to 1861.
