CD's and Brochures of Sanfilippo Collection
By Robert Ridgeway

In response to the inquiry by Terry Smythe about the availability of
a book on the Sanfilippo Collection similar to the Nethercut San Sylmar
book -- such a thing is actively in process at this very moment.

Art Reblitz, a name known to nearly all MMD readers, is writing such a
volume.  It will cover the Sanfilippo, Gilson and Krughoff collections
in extensive detail (since these three collections represent some of
the largest and finest instruments ever collected) with hundreds of
color photographs.

Also covered will be numerous early "pioneering" collectors and some
technical information.  This large work should be completed in 1998 and
its availability will be extensively announced via the AMICA and MBSI
journals and the MMD.

The brochure "The Victorian Palace" was prepared for the MBSI conven-
tion in Chicago last year and since then we have sold thousands of
copies of this full-color brochure.  All the proceeds go to charity.
Presently we are out of this first printing but a second edition is
presently being assembled.

It will cover not only the house and music collection (as the first
edition did) but will also now include the Fairground Arts Building
on the property which houses the "Eden Palais" Salon Carousel (circa
1886), all the band and dance organs and the steam locomotive.  Again,
we hope to have this new edition available in the early spring and we
shall announce it via the MMD.

At the present time we have three CD's of the Wurlitzer pipe organ
available with three more "in the can" and due to be released very
soon.  Information concerning all but one of the CD's can be obtained
at the web site <>

Thank you for your interest.  I hope this answers some of the

Sanfilippo Collection
