About this Item

Very scarce piece of ephemera produced by the Whirsching Organ Company of Salem, Ohio, which was known for making high quality artistic organs designed by George A. Audsley and J. Burr Tiffany of The Art Organ Company of New York City. This brochure measuring 6"x8-3/4" is a promo piece containing a letter from the private secretary of the Maharaja of Mysore India who had ordered an insrtrument from the company which was accompanied to its destination by a staff member who oversaw its installation. The letter is full of superlatives, especially for its self-playing feature which the company was also noted for. Left side of the inside shows photo of installation with information about the instrument while the right hand side contains the complete text of the letter. Very clean and nice, but fault to lower back corner which shows soil and brown spots. Bookseller Inventory # 24892

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
