Heinrich Friedrich Müller (1779-1848) was a Viennese publisher who produced the first German picture-book. His company also published musical scores. His widow sold the music publishing business to Franz Wessely and Friedrich Büsing in 1858. They ran it as Wessely & Büsing, although Büsing soon left. In 1885, a year before his death, Wessely sold it to Vinzenz Kratochwill, who in turn sold out to Bosworth in 1889.
However, some F. Roerich & Co. publications of the 1890s (e.g. Molbe) are marked "formerly F Wessely".
