Journal of surviving Boosé, Boosey and Boosey & Hawkes brass instruments, with archival and catalogue data

The Web address of this page is http://homepages.ed.ac.uk/am/gdsj.html

Note: there is a separate list for Distin & Co brasswind which includes instruments made in the period 1872-1874 after Boosey & Co purchased the Distin & Co business but which have serial numbers in the Distin & Co sequences.

This list includes instruments which are in one of the following categories:

  1. in a permanent museum collection
  2. mentioned in a publication such as an exhibition or auction catalogue, or offered for sale on eBay (not all eBay items are listed)
  3. The author (Arnold Myers) has examined the item
  4. details have been communicated by a private collector
  5. The location is not extant but I copied the details for research purposes (thus the list includes details from the archives of tenor euphoniums, the very first Blaikley compensating instruments, the first ballad horns and some other items not known to have survived). These are denoted [ present location not known ].
Thus some of the data about inscriptions and bore sizes is recorded at first hand, and some is taken from publications and pictures or communiations from owners.

$ denotes code for bore in pistons books

BR denotes measured bore at valve cluster (mm)
