Residents in London are respectfully requested to call between the hours of Three and Four, when Mr. Case attends to try over Concertinas and music. Boosey and Sons, sole dealers in Case's Concertinas, 28, Holles-street. , is a very complete and perfect instrument for measuring time in music. It is the size and form of a small watch, and may be carried in the waistcoat pocket, being similar to a spring measuring tape, on one side of which are marked the numbers of vibrations in one minute, (as in Maelzel's Metronome) and on the other the Italian musical terms in general use. From its moderate price, small dimensions, and practical usefulness, it is adapted for all classes of musicians and singers. Price, with case and suspender, Brass, 5s.; German Silver, 6s.
