Anton Böhm is a family music store and publishing business based in Augsburg, Swabia (Western Bavaria). It specializes in publishing Catholic church music.

On 22nd November 1803, St Cecilia's Day, Andreas Böhm (1765-1834) founded a musical goods store in Augsburg. His son Anton Böhm (1807-1886) gave the firm its present name in 1831. It operated a printing shop from then until 1918. On Anton's son Moritz Böhm (1846-1896) entering the firm in 1871 the name became Anton Böhm & Sohn. A Vienna branch was opened in 1893, but was closed in 1946. Moritz's son Theodor Böhm (1879-1946) managed the firm from 1906, and his niece Johanna Specht (1914-1999), and her husband the lawyer Dr. Friedrich Ballinger (1906-1986) took over in 1935. After destruction by bombing in 1944 the firm was rebuilt. In 1977 Thomas Amtmann (1955-), son of Dr. Friedrich Ballinger's sister entered the firm.

Anton Böhm of Augsburg should not be confused with J.A. Böhme of Hamburg, which operated at the same time.
