Inscription.   Im Juni 1871 gründete Ernst Stoer (1846-1934) eine Buchhandlung, die lange Zeit am Markt angesiedelt war (an der Stelle des heutigen Rathausneubaus). 1921 ging sie in den Besitz von Johannes Trebst (1887-1972) über, der die Buchhandlung mit Wirkung vom 1. Januar 1923 in "Rückert-Buchhandlung” umbenannte. Gleichzeitig ließ er über der Eingangstür ein Holzrelief Friedrich Rückerts (1788-1866) anbringen, das der Würzburger Bildhauer Ludwig Sonnleitner (1878-1947) geschaffen hatte.

In June 1871, Ernst Stoer (1846-1934) founded a bookstore that was for a long time located on the market square (on the site of today's new city hall). In 1921 it became the property of Johannes Trebst (1887-1972), who renamed the bookstore "Rückert Bookshop", effective January 1, 1923. At the same time he had a wooden relief of Friedrich Rückert (1788-1866) affixed above the front door, which was created by the Würzburg sculptor Ludwig Sonnleitner (1878-1947).
