It's here!!!

I bought this Edison Home complete with crane and 10 panel cygnet horn. It also came with a case of cylinders. There were no photos of the cylinders, only 2 photos of the Home. there was no real description other than needs belts and crank. I took a chance and boy am i happy!

There are some real great cylinders from Germany! Some teaching cylinders, 2 blanks, and a few real fun songs. 2 were broken in the case but I don't think it happened in shipping.

I cant wait to get a new belt and crank.

:)

I can't read most of the song titles, but from the few I can read I think those are not German but Scandinavian. Grieg in Norwegian certainly is.

Interesting,
I know 2 are German but the others could be anything.

"Sangen om Ivar Huitfeldt" is a song about a Norwegian folk hero.

Iver Huitfeldt was killed in action during the Great Northern War at a battle in Køge Bugt on 4 October 1710. The Dano-Norwegian fleet was engaged by the Swedish fleet, and Huitfeldt's ship Dannebroge exploded after a fire on deck reached the gunpowder depot. After the ship caught fire, Huitfeldt ordered his crew to remain onboard and continue firing at the Swedish fleet. Due to Dannebroge's strategic position, this decision allowed the rest of the Dano-Norwegian fleet to escape, but lead to the deaths of almost the entire crew. The corpse of Ivar Huitfeldt was later found on the beach in Køge Bugt.

According to the commander in chief of the Dano-Norwegian navy, Ulrik Christian Gyldenløve, the fire on Dannebroge was probably ignited by the cannons of the ship. Gyldenløve mentions this in his letter to the king, where Gyldenløve also regrets that a "brave and talented" officer should die in such a miserable way.

Fascinating! Thank you for sharing that. A perfect example of how one learns about so much more than music by collecting records.
