Erhard Löcker set up the company as mail order business in 1971. In 1973 a cooperation with Walter Wögenstein started which lasted until 1982.

Also in 1973 the opening of the store in the Annagasse in the city centre of Vienna, where it is still situated today, took place.

The publishing house "Löcker & Wögenstein Verlag" was founded in 1974 with its first publication being "Der Aufstand der österreichischen Arbeiter" by Otto Bauer.

The company's current name "Löcker Verlag" is the result of a change of name in 1978. To this day, the Löcker Verlag has released over 600 books on humanities-related subjects including literature, art, music, architecture and contemporary history. 

In addition to the antique book store and the publishing house, the "Arcadia Opera Shop" opened its gates in 1989. Soon after the opening it became obvious that the Arcadia would establish itself as a particularly popular adress among opera lovers. 

In the course of the years the Antiquariat Löcker participated in numerous international antiquarian book fairs.

Up to today the sizeable stock of books, prints and journals is organised in approximately 100 catalogues an lists.

The Antiquariat already had the privilege to sell several prominent inheritances including those of
