New Amberola Graphic

New Amberola Graphic was founded and edited by Martin F. Bryan of St. Johnsbury VT. It focused primarily on the acoustic and early electric periods of recording history ~1900-1930. It featured biographical and discographical research, reprints of old news stories, advertisements and brochures, information about collecting, repairing and maintaining acoustic talking machines, book reviews, obituaries, and classifieds and auction lists. One of my favorite parts of reading NAG is watching the collectors' community change over the long lifespan of the publication.

Thanks to UCSB Libraries, Barry Kasindorf and Roger York for contributing many of these issues!

*Issues 1-8 were not originally circulated in large numbers, and were reprinted later to allow subscribers to read them. Issues 1-4 and 5-8 are bound together. I had access to original copies of issues 5 and 8, so these are presented individually in addition to the bound reprints.

**Updated to direct download as Archive.org seems to have a problem with the files. Will change back if/when this is fixed.
