Book by William Braid White
By Brian Chesters

I read with interest Craig Brougher's note about William Braid White's book about piano repairing, and him never having fixed a piano in his life.

I have a copy of the book 'The Player Pianist' by W. B. White: "A guide to the appreciation and interpretation of music through the medium of the Player-piano." It was printed in 1910 and runs to 150 pages. The last nine pages are adverts for various player pianos, cloth and piano wire manufacturers and other books on the subject.

I wonder if W.B.W. ever played a player piano or did he just have a good imagination? I don't suppose it matters, as I have had the book in my collection for twenty years and I have never read it!!
