Product Description

In 1984, The Boston Organ Club chapter of the Organ Historical Society issued The Johnson Organs, a ground-breaking study by John Van Varick Elsworth. It featured the first published, annotated work list of an American organ builder, and included all 860 of his organs! Now, thirty-one years later, under the affectionate direction of the noted author and historian, Barbara Owen, the Johnson list has been re-annotated in greater detail and brought up to date. Combined with dozens of facsimiles, a year-by year accounting of the firm, and a detailed restoration report by nationally respected organ restorer, Scot L. Huntington, this two-hundred fifty-page volume is sure to fascinate. The book should be in the library of every devotee of the American pipe organ.
