Paillard Tune Book for Interchangeable Music Box
By Beatrice Robertson

[ Ref. "Paillard Music Disc Catalog", 030722 MMDigest ]

The book you have is the tune list for a particular Paillard
Interchangeable Music Box.  Chances are, it would only match the
tunes for a very few boxes, perhaps even only one, depending on the
specific cylinders  that are listed.  It would be invaluable to the
person who owns that particular box, but the chances of finding that
person are slim to none.

Other than that particular music box owner, the "Album" is interesting
as a piece of music box history.  Are they rare?  Yes, because I think
they weren't included with Paillard Interchangeables for a very long
length of time, and then, only at the late years of production when not
many boxes were made.  I know of a few which are still with their boxes.
Please let us know at MMD what you decide to do with the booklet.
