Presto Buyers Guide of 1926
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All, The Presto Buyers Guide of 1926 is a very good resource for
determining the relative quality of numerous pianos.  The length of the
treatise is usually indicative of the authors feelings about the many
companies listed.  It goes into great detail about some companies while
others get only a short paragraph.

Where they came up with all the adjectives is another story altogether,
but the book is good for getting a general feeling about how the
companies were looked upon in the late 'twenties.
