Yes, I can ship to the UK for actual shipping charges.
Thanks - that is good news. I take it these records can be played on a normal DD player.

I tried to send a PM yesterday but it seems to have disappeared, I don't know if you received it. If not, do you have an e-mail addtress so I can send my postal detail?

Regards

I have an early (smaller horn) BC-34 with the 10/12" buttons. Apparently, from what I have read, Edison was again considering 12" discs around 1922 (they had originally proposed them in the beginning), but nothing ever came of it until the LPs came along.

Yeah, my William & Mary has the 10" - 12" buttons as well. I suppose I should probably get one of these then eh?

The "puny" 10" disc is pictured just to show size.

$100 shipped in the continental USA.
Have you or are you planning to post any audio clips? I don't know much about classical music and it would be nice to hear before deciding to purchase.
