History

This British music publishing and importing company was established in London by John Jeremiah Ewer in 1823. Julius Johanning (1795-1859) was Ewer’s partner from about 1824 until 1829. In these years the firm was run under the name of Ewer & Johanning. Thereafter Ewer continued as J.J. Ewer & Co. until 1867 when the company was purchased by Novello.
The catalog included reprints of continental composers such as Molique, Durrner and Mendelssohn, from C.F. Leede of Leipzig, and also local composers such as O'Leary.
