Aeolian Aeriola & 1905 Aeolian Roll Catalog
By Bryan Cather

In MMD 1999.02.04, Bill Wineburgh writes concerning the Aeolian

"I...have a copy of the 1905 'Catalog of Music For the Pianola, Pianola
Piano and Aeriola,' published by Aeolian Company, Aeolian Hall, 362
Fifth Avenue Near 34th Street, New York. The reference in the book's
title to Aeriola suggests that there were enough of these instruments
around to include it in their marketing of 65-note rolls."

I have a similar catalog, dated July 1905 which is titled, "Catalog of
Music for The Pianola and Pianola Piano".  The address on Fifth Avenue
(Near 34th Street) is identical.  This volume ( "Vol. I.") makes no
mention of the Aeriola.  I wonder if, perhaps, the Aeriola was dropped
by Aeolian sometime between January and July, 1905?
