Raphael Dressler (1784–1835) was an Austrian flutist and composer who spent the years 1820–1834 in London, where his flute method was first published. The fingering chart is for the eight-key flute, but Dressler played an 11-key flute at the time, with a low B (common on contemporary Viennese flutes, but not on English flutes), two keys for Bb, and three keys for F natural.
