Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The sound of a street 'barrel organ'or a fairground organ may revive distant memories for older people or stir an interest in younger folk. Wealhtier families may have possessed their own automatic music machines in the form of a player piano, a Polyphon or cylinder musical box. If well treated, these instruments may still be in working order. This book covers the history, development, use and fall from favor of many types of exotic instruments, from pocket-sized musical boxes to roll-playing pipe organs. It describes, organettes, roller organ, orchestrions, nickelodeons, carillons and many more.
