Johann Georg Schübler was a German engarver and organist, who belonged to the Schübler family of artisians from Zella in the Turingian forrest. Their stock-in-trade was iron cutting, the incising of ornamental designs on gun barrels, trivets, and the like. The incising method used wass closely related to the Abklatsschvorlage method employed by the family, in their music engraving. J.G. Schübler studied privately with J.S. Bach in Leipzig at the beginning of the 1740's and became an organist and schoolteacher in Mehlis. Schübler is known as the engraver of the " Sechs Choräle von verschiedener Ari..." (BWV 645-650) " In Verlegung Joh. Georg Schübler zu Zella am Thüringer Walde. He studied. The remarkable organ piece seems to be the only extant work by Schübler. E. L. Qerber mentions further that III organ trios for two manuals and pedal on: Meine Seele lass es gehen, were known in Mst. He also assisted J.S. Bach with the engraving of the Musical Offering (BWV 1079).
