For the use of the organ builder, organ auditor, organists and architects Published by Max Allihn). This is a set of 63 detailed illustrations on organ building. Although the cover is in German, inside it's all illustrations, so a knowledge of German is not required. The book is extremely rare, but is also in quite poor condition. Most of the spine is missing, but the pages still hold together. The front cover is very worn and tattered, and the rear cover is missing. There is some water staining on pages in the back. Still, the illustrations are great, and this work is an important book in the history of this industry. Size: 4mo - over 9 3/4" - 12" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 2 - 3 pounds. Category: Music; Pictures of this item not already displayed here available upon request. Inventory No: 001336.
