An Index to the subscribers to Hopkins & Rimbault (First Edition: 1855)

The first edition of Edward J.

Rimbault's "New History of the Organ: [being] memoirs of the most eminent builders of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and other matters of research in connection with the subject", was published in 1855 as The Organ, its History and Construction .

A second edition was published in 1870 and a third in 1877.

This is headed by Prince Albert, 11 selected notables and 5 institutional subscribers, followed by 541 individual subscribers alphabetically ordered, this number including the short addendum list.
