R. Rosauer

Buenos Aires, Argentina (Publisher, Printer)

The Austrian Robert (Roberto) Rosauer († 1940) emigrated to Buenos Aires, Argentina in the late nineteenth century and founded the publishing house Casa Editora de R. Rosauer (Verlag von R. Rosauer) at calle Rivadavia 571. He published books and real photographic view postcards of Argentina, the latter which began in 1901 and were printed in Germany by Alphons Adolph, the royal Bavarian court photographer in Passau. In 1902, the company advertised: Published postcards with views of Argentina. Price: $1 – $5 dozen, 100 different." Researchers working in Argentina brought their photographs of gauchos, Indians, and landscapes to Rosauer, and they would sell the printed postcards to help fund their expeditions. Rosauer was also a philatelist and owned a shop, Casa Filatélica, at calle Rivadavia 522.
