  1. a brief survey of Edinburgh organ builders past and present;
  2. lists of the 171 organs by current location with dates of installation, maker, number of manuals and speaking stops, and subsequent changes;
  3. lists of the over 200 organs no longer extant, with the same details;
  4. chronological list of organ installations from 1466 to 1991; and
  5. list of each organ builder's work in Edinburgh.

"It presents a vast amount of data in compressed form about every instrument known to have been installed in the should see service on the desks and in the briefcases of organ sleuths"

(British Institute of Organ Studies Journal, Volume 15, 1991)

"These 56 pages are packed with well-presented and easy-to-find information, with especially useful notes on Edinburgh organ builders"
