Consolidated Brown-Wax Cylinder Catalog Highlights (Late 1890s)

A companion piece to the United States Phonograph Company flyer shown in the previous post — This Consolidated Phonograph Companies  Supplemental Bulletin shows the same address as U.S. Phonograph and lists the Issler titles from “The Bride-Elect,” possibly the same recordings featured in U.S. flyer. The latest song titles listed in this catalog were early 1899 publications, providing an approximately date for this piece.

We’ll be posting higher-resolution scans of the complete 20-page catalog, along with many other rare brown-wax lists, on the Mainspring website in the upcoming months as part of The American Cylinder Record Project.
