J. H. Gemrig Civil War catalogue

 

Page 1

This is one of the earliest known comprehensive instrument catalogs by a major American instrument maker.   It dates to immediately after the Civil War, c. 1866 (per the 109 South Eight St. address), but most of the instruments would have been available during the Civil War or before depending on the configuration.  Germrig, as other American makers, may have imported and sold European and English instruments under the Gemrig maker name.  So if you see an instrument that appears like it came form Paris or Scotland, don't be surprised.

 

The original of this catalog is in my private collection and none of the pages may be used on another web site.  Reproduction of the various pages are available at no charge if you would please request permission to print them.  All rights reserved.
