Seek Gloria Musical Box & Zinc Discs Information
By Dave Bowers

In connection with the forthcoming Encyclopedia of Disc Music Boxes
I am seeking information from anyone who has a _Gloria_ music box that
came with _zinc_ discs.  I would like to communicate regarding the
mechanisms, case design and construction, and more.

I extend my warm thanks and appreciation to the many MMD readers who
have loaned catalogs, sent information, and have helped in many other
ways.  This book is planned to be published by the Automatic Musical
Instrument Collectors Association (AMICA) early in 2012.  Supported
by grants, it is expected that copies will be available for a very
affordable price.  It will be in color and printed on high-quality
paper.  No expense will be spared to make this a musical treasure in
itself -- a nice complement to the many other fine books on the subject
that have been published over the years.

Thank you again,
Dave Bowers
