Original Literature From a 1935 Conn Saxophone

Here is a rare find, something that was given to me as a birthday present from a good customer of mine.  This is the original warranty booklet from a 1935 Conn saxophone, along with the Conn pad measuring tool.

Very interesting reading, and several pieces of good advice from yesteryear that still apply today.   Click the thumbnails for a high-resolution version.  I love the design on the cover.

Anybody know whose initials those are on the tested by/inspected by?
