FS: Collection of Mechanical Music Publications
By Terry Smythe

After some 40+ years in this delightful avocation, I've acquired
a significant number of various publications.  Time has come to
begin disposal, while I still can in some rational way, rather
than leaving it all for my heirs to dispose of it in the BlueBox
recycle bin.

Within the collection are some 60+ books that I would classify as
"coffee table" books; a number of 1st edition books; many catalogs from
McKinnon, Hathaway & Bowers, American International Galleries, Vestal
Press, etc; House Organ from Vestal Press; several hundred issues of
journals from MBSI, MBSGB, PPG, etc; and my own collection of AMICA
Bulletins, believed to be the only known complete collection.  I've put
together a spreadsheet of my collection, which may be downloaded from

Ideally, I would really like to dispose of everything all at once.  If
it will help, I'm planning to drive to the AMICA Convention in Cincinnati
in late July, and I could bring the collection with me.
