Manual

  • To sort on a column, click on the icon next to the column title
  • Entering new or modifying data. The columns need to be sortable. Therefore, when multiple entries exist for one publisher, start a new column for the new entry. Duplicate the non-changing information but include it in {{Hide|text}}. It is important not to use spaces after the pipe symbol - the sorting would occur on the space.
    • Name: Use the name as used by the publisher. If applicable, link to its own page. Do not sort on first names, "Edition", etc.
    • Plate No: Each # stands for one digit used. Put a space between letters and digits or ampersands, but not between letters. Use punctuation as used by the publisher.
    • Place: Main or original place of activity first

Carisch & Jänichen C. ##### J. bef.1898-aft.1956 Milan; Leipzig Still exists as Carisch & Jänichen Musical Instruments - perhaps also as publisher? Needs looking into, I think (as do several other "2nd or 3rd tier publishers" that turn up once awhile). Seems to have printed some 15000 plates at least (Bloch sonata, 1956?) in that 60-year timeframe - does anyone know anything about them?

Chez A. Kühnel Bureau de Musique ### 1800–1813 Leipzig (Germany) The following information is available from the Edition Peters website (http://www.edition-peters.com/aboutus/history.php): "On 1 December 1800 the conductor and composer Franz Anton Hoffmeister (1754–1812) entered into partnership with the bookseller and organist Ambrosius Kühnel (1770–1813) for the purpose of establishing a 'Bureau de Musique' in Leipzig . . . . In 1806 the business passed into the sole ownership of A. Kühnel when it was officially registered under the name 'Neuer Verlag des Bureau de Musique' . . . . Following Kühnel's untimely death, the firm was acquired by the Leipzig bookseller Carl Friedrich Peters (1779–1827), who traded from 1 April 1814 under the name 'Bureau de Musique de C.F. Peters'." (see below, Edition Peters) However, there is at least one extant work (Crusell, Clarinet Concerto op.1) with Kühnel's name and 'Bureau de Musique', so it is unclear whether editions so marked belong to the 1800–1806 or 1806–1813 period.
Kunkel Brothers #### 1868-ca.1923 St. Louis
Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir ### 1801-1814? Vienna (Also known as Bureau d'Arts (or des Arts) et d'Industrie.) acc. to "Beethoven and His World" (Clive), firm of music publishers, and dealers in maps and map prints, founded in 1801 by the painter Joseph Anton Kappeller & the lawyer Jakob Holer, under the name "Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir Kappeller und Holer". Kappeller left in 1802; ownership of the firm changed about a bit and the name changed to "Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir zu Wien". The firm was taken over in 1814 by Joseph Riedl von Leuenstern.They were Beethoven's principal publisher from 1802 to 1808 (when Breitkopf assumed that role; before 1802 this was Artaria principally, even though sometimes Beethoven had had some works published by Mollo, with sometimes quite negative results...), and in all, the K-a-I-Comptoir Wien published in all some forty first editions of his works. (Paraphrased from Clive.)
