  1. If you're interested in concertina pricelists through the years, Chris Algar has collected a lot of them. See http://www.concertina.com/pricelists/index.htm
  2. Not so mysterious. Of every page in the ledgers there is a small and a large representation. In this case their addresses are: .../PAGES/D3P0910S.HTM .../PAGES/D3P0910L.HTM
  3. Theo and Malcolm refer to the same page in the ledger. Serial number 36532 is a amboyna ended model 5E, dated 16-2-1959. (Not 1859)
  4. This confusion about bi- and unidirectional was spoken about before in this topic:

  12. As played in 2008 on youtube by Marien Lina, member on C.net. His comment on this tune: Blaeu gaeren en koper draet" a Dutch tune known from `Hollantsche Boerenlieties en Contredansen` part 1 (1700), also known as "la boree" or ´Bourree de la France`, It has parts in common with the english ´parsons farwell` from the Playford Dancing Master of 1653. it also has a lot in common with a melody in "Valerius´ gedenck clanck", 1625 ("hij die tot een opperheld"). It is a long time ago that melodies of existing popular street songs were used for promoting christian texts. This suggests that the song was a well known Dutch street song before 1625.
  13. Beautiful instrument indeed!
