F.W. Höfer
(fl. 1870s-    )

F.W. (probably Friedrick Wilhelm) Höfer operated a mineral dealership (Mineralienhandlung) in Nieder-Lahnstein and Ober-Lahnstein, Nassau, Germany. He is mentioned in an 1874 issue of Neues Jahrbuch für Mineralogie as having beautiful specimens of ardennite. In 1878 Paul Groth, in his work on the mineral collection of Kaiser Wilhelm University in Strassburg, mentioned Höfer as being one of the more important mineral dealers, along with Bergmann in Innsbruck, Daniel Blatz in Heidelberg, Gentzsch in Vienna, Hermann Heymann (who was supplanted by Bernard Stürtz) in Bonn, Carl Hintze in Strassburg, Herman Hoseus in Basel, Hugo Kemna in Hannover, Carl Pech in Berlin, Theodor Schuchardt in Görlitz, Seifert in Töplitz, Ferdinand Senft in Dresden, the Mining Academy dealership (under Rudolph Wappler) in Freiberg, and Julius Böhm and Franz Wiedemann in Munich.
