The printing and publishing company of Josef Eberle & Co. was founded by Josef Eberle (24 January 1845–13 January 1921) in Vienna in 1873. By 1888 the firm was also acting as a publisher of music, issuing technical exercises, editions of the classic repertoire, and popular songs and dance music. Additionally, the firm was instrumental in securing the publication of a number of symphonies by Anton Bruckner and Gustav Mahler and itself published some of the early works of Franz Schreker. Cranz, which had taken over Spina in 1876, seems to have sold Spina to Eberle around 1900, judging from the covers.
Sometime in the 1890s Eberle merged with the printing company Rudolf v. Waldheim forming R. v. Waldheim-Jos. Eberle & Co. or simply Waldheim-Eberle. The firm was the printer for Universal Edition from the company's founding in 1901 until 1960. After the German annexation of Austria in 1938 the firm was aryanized and taken over by M. Müller & Sohn. Waldheim-Eberle closed in 1974.
