I've just downloaded a Crane Concertina tutorial by H. Wilton Bulstrode. Looks early 1900's but does anyone have an accurate date for this? Also does anyone know when the first Crane Duet was manufactured.

First manufactured? The patent is 1896, so presumably at least one prototype before then and commercial production shortly after. If the instruction manual is 1898 one assumes there was a market for it by then.
