Reed Organ "Hermione" by Etienne Calba of Nancy
By Gerard Dabonot

Hello,  in 120220 MMDigest Bjorn Isebaert was searching for the scale
of the "Hermione" organ which looks like a Thibouville system and was
made in Nancy, Lorraine, France.

There is one in the museum at Mirecourt.  As far as we know there was
only this 27-note model; it was not a large firm.

Thanks to Michel Hocquet, I have a copy from the "Brevet d'invention du
3 aout 1889 à Malzéville".  The scale is

  Do re fa sol la

  Do ré mi
