Friedrich August Gottlob Schumann (March 2, 1773 Endschütz - August 10, 1826 Zwickau, Saxony) was a German bookseller and publisher. His best-known work is the 18-volume Lexicon of Saxony, which was completed after his death by Albert Schiffner. He wrote Junker Kurt von Krötenstein's verliebte Heldenfahrt (Lord Kurt von Krötenstein's Hero's Journey of Love) under the pen name of Legaillard.

He was the father of the composer Robert Schumann (1810 - 1856).
