As everyone is aware, the Encyclopedia of Automatic Musical Instruments
by Q. David Bowers is in the process of being reprinted. We expect to
receive it in stock in early July although printers are notoriously
unreliable on deadlines.
In an earlier announcement, I indicated that Mechantiques would be
selling the Encyclopedia at $90 each postpaid and two for $160 postpaid.
While this is below the publisher's list price, our objective is to get
this book back into the hands of collectors who need them (we have worn
out several over the years).
As a result, we have decided to lower our selling price for the
Encyclopedia to $80 each postpaid and two for $150 postpaid. I emphasize
"postpaid" because I think that is going to cost us around $10 per book.
We have received many orders at the higher prices, and I want to assure
everyone that they will receive a refund with their books to reflect the
now lower prices.
