I didn't buy this book at Amazon but from the OHS (Organ Historical Society). It is very detailed and leaning towards a scholarly approach, but Orpha Ochse managed to write it in an interesting and still entertaining way, so no boring, dry historical facts here! Hopefully some day it will be updated with the most recent developments in the field. Orpha Ochse is one of the leading authorities in this country for Pipe Organ History, a great scholar and, as I was told by my American colleagues in the Pipe Organ Field, a lovely person.
