Rolls number 1, 6, 19, and 22 are from a rare Welte fairground organ.

I would like to buy for myself a monkey organ. I noticed that Wayne Edmonston has had a Molinari for sale for the last four years. I visited Wayne in February 1993 and noticed it then but I didn't take much interest in it. Has anyone else looked at it in detail? can anyone give me any more information on it? ( I have never heard of Molinari)
All the best from England.
