Skinner's upcoming auction of mechanical music and automata takes place
in Boston on Saturday 24 March.  The sale features a particularly
strong collection of good cylinder musical boxes, including an Ami
Rivenc revolver, a Nicole Grand Format, several overture boxes, and

longtime MBSI member, the late Vern Voss, whose family intends to
donate the proceeds to the Technical Training Fund of the Oregon
Community Foundation.

Other highlights include a number of fine automata by Gustave Vichy, 
Lambert, Henry Phalibois, Tharin, and Roullet & Decamps, disc boxes 
including 25-inch Kalliope with bells, 24 1/2-inch Polyphon, a
multitude of Reginas, and a large 38-key barrel organ by Molinari &
Sons playing all-American tunes.  The catalogue will be available
