'PIANOLA AND PIANOLA PIANO MUSIC CATALOG, 65 NOTE' for July, 1910,
published by the Aeolian Company. Hard cover, 482 pages. Size --
5-1/4 by 7-3/4 inches.
Contains a complete list of 65 note Pianola music issued prior to
July 1, 1910 by the Aeolian Company. Does NOT include 'Metrostyle'
rolls. 'Pianola' refers to a push-up piano playing machine, also
called a 'Vorsetzer,' while Pianola Piano means a piano with a
player built into it.
Rolls are listed alphabetically by category -- Classic; Operatic,
Musical Comedy and Popular; Dance; Sacred; Accompaniment; and also
listed alphabetically by Composer. Each roll is listed with its
original catalog number and price. A useful feature is that selec-
tions included in medleys are listed by individual title with a cross
reference to the name of the medley roll.
There are thousands of titles and hundreds of composers listed in
this catalog. 65-note rolls were the original size of piano roll,
preceding the standard 88-note rolls which are now much more commonly
found. Once 88 note rolls became standardized, very few 65-note rolls
were issued, and this occurred about 1915, so this catalog covers the
majority of 65 note rolls made by Aeolian.
Condition -- Very Good; cover has stains and rubs at edges, pages
are yellowed but clean and unmarked. Binding is still pretty strong.
