FALK Ludwik  

Pianoforte-maker ca. 1840-66

"The main shop for pianos in the shape of grands and squares, as well as improved mechanics of Vienna, has always introduced regulators and power supplies from 145 to 300 tal. - Unchanged in my trade, I will still be able to buy a new bull, and besides, I will be buying the instruments in the best possible way. The Aelodica has a new design. In addition, for those who are earning a living, I recommend my huge inventory of exactly the same and beautifully made three quartered and whole billiards of cedarwood species and the most exquisite decoration at steady prices (fair purchasers also pay the installments.) Unchanged in my trade, the bull remains, and in addition to the shortest distance I will make the purchase of instruments, the easiest way to get to the void as well has any exchange of old 6 octave instruments. Aelodica has a new design. In addition, for those on a payroll or for salvation, I would recommend my big stock of complete and beautifully made three quartered and whole billiards from the densely populated tree species and with the most exquisite decoration at steady prices (reliable buyers also letting the money down.) and accepts terms in different sizes. Make long distance calls. Poznan, in July 1844 Ludwik Falk, at 21 Szerokiej Street." (Google-translation) Amtsblatt der Königlichen Preußischen Regierung zu Bromberg, 1844, p. 709-710
