About Gabriel Nicholas Raspe

Gabriel Nicholas Raspe was a book publisher in Nuremberg, born on 4 December 1712 in Crelpa, between Saalfeld and Neustadt on der Orla. His father was a tax collector and mayor of Laucha, who had married well. He was one of nine children who, after attending grammar school in Naumburg, apprenticed as a printer in a bookstore in Leipzig. He later worked in bookstores in Helmstedt and Zerbst before eventually taking a job in the then famous bookshop of Gleditsch in Leipzig. In 1739, the bookseller John Stone died and his widow asked Raspe to come to Nuremberg to manage his business. He continued in this capacity until 1743 with the death of the widow and his marriage to Stone s the daughter. He then joined with his brother to publish an extensive catalogue on a variety of subjects. After the death of his wife in 1754 he launched his own bookstore/publishing house by himself. He continued to expand his catalogue to over six hundred work, of which few brought him any profit. He printed books on a variety of subjects and was known for his illustrations. In the 1770 s he began publishing books on military matters that included heraldry and arms. He Published books on the armies of Europe including France, Prussia and, of course Poland-Lithuania. Raspe died on 25 October 1785. Vincent W.
