German publisher and businessman who expanded his business interests to include coal companies, bricklayers, quarries, cement and paper mills. In Switzerland, he owned a creamery. He also became a major property owner, with buildings throughout Stuttgart and a "castle" in Tutzing, on the Starnberger See.
In 1850, he began issuing a monthly magazine for young people, Jugend-Album, which was published until 1889.
In 1853, he created the family magazine, Illustrirte Welt, which was very successful and eventually had a circulation of 150,000 copies. Encouraged by this, he joined with the writers, Friedrich Wilhelm Hackländer and Edmund Zoller (1822-1902), to create the illustrated news magazine Über Land und Meer. This was equally successful and was published until 1923.
To produce his illustrations, he created "E. Hallberger X. A."; among the largest xylographic companies in Germany. One of his most popular works, Aegypten in Bild und Wort (Egypt in Image and Word), with commentary by the Egyptologist, Georg Ebers, was issued in 1879 and translated into several languages, including English, French and Czech.
Eduard Hallberger died on 29 August 1880 at his castle in Tutzing at age 58.
