"The fact that Goerke in 1897, just like Stieglitz six years later, attached the greatest importance to the fine reproduction of the photographs he published is clear from his choice of printing establishments. After a brief spell with Blechinger & Leykauf, he changed over to one of the most prestigious companies of the day, namely Meisenbach Riffarth & Co. in Berlin." (Rolf H. Krauss "Die Kunst in der Photographie, the German Camera Work. Part 1: The Publication and its Images" History of Photography, Volume 10, Number 4, October-December 1986, p.274)
 
David Spencer adds the additional comment that "this might have made sense because the first art folio for 1897 was devoted to the Camera-Club in Wien" (November 2006)
