Hello!

I was just reading about "descriptive specialties" and was wondering if anybody
knows where we can acess such type of phonograph records samples on the
Internet (or just even phonograph samples ... if there is any).

According to Sterne, descriptive specialities where false simulated events or
places (specially recreated for a recording machines like the phonograph). Such
descriptive specialties seems to have been popular around early-nineteenth.

Thanks!
