Regal Musical Instruments: 1895-1955

by Bob Carlin

The only book to trace the history of the Chicago musical manufacturer. With roots in Indianapolis, the Regal familiar to most collectors and players was spun off of music giant Lyon & Healy in 1908. Besides making ukuleles, mandolins, guitars and other stringed instruments for Lyon & Healy, Regal of Chicago supplied the majority of America's wholesalers with "house brand" instruments, and also had a long relationship with Montgomery-Ward. Draws upon period trade magazines, distributor catalogues and extent instruments from both public and private collections. Includes over 350 full-color photographs of guitars, mandolins, ukuleles and banjos. A must-have for all collectors. 318 pp.
