MATRIXSYNTH: Final Set of A-Z of Analogue Synthesisers

Final Set of A-Z of Analogue Synthesisers


via this auction

The listing is from the author Peter Forrest who states this is likely the last set.  These are great books and imo the most comprehensive.  Click on the pics to get an idea of what they are like.  Peter also has other items listed including The Museum of Synthesizer Technology and Synthesizer von Gestern II.

Description for A-Z including draft list of synths covered:

"A complete two-volume set of the most comprehensive encyclopaedia of analogue synths and keyboards in the world - direct from the author.

The original A-M was produced in 1994, and then re-written and expanded in 1998. There are probably nearly twice as many words crammed in to the second edition as there were in the first. The second edition has 320 pages, 16 of which are full colour, while the original edition only had 240 pages. There's a whole lot of extra information about EMS, Moog, and many other manufacturers; a greatly improved index, and a new index to the musicians mentioned in the book. So if you're into, say, Tangerine Dream, you can find the 25 pages on which they're mentioned; Tim Blake, 8 pages; and even Tim Buckley on two.

The first edition was printed in a run of 2000, and 2000 copies of this revised edition were also printed (plus a few printers' run-ons). This second edition has been officially out of print for three years now, so is impossible to buy via any bookseller like Amazon. I think I have run out of every single mint copy of the books, but there are a few books still left which have some blemish or more major problem.

After a few months busy with other things, I have dug the last few near-mint copies out to sell. This might well be the last one which doesn't have cosmetic damage to the colour pages, or other serious issues.

This A-M is serial number 0006. It has some slight scuffing to the front cover which wouldn't show up in a photo. I kept this and 0001 for myself, but it's time to send it off to a new home. It is in perfectly good enough condition to be sold in a bookshop.

The original N-Z was printed in 1996, in a run of 2000, and then the second revised edition (of 3000) was printed in 2003. It has 384 pages, including 16 in full colour. Please check the photos to see the sort of coverage you will get of rare, obscure instruments like the Syntons and Wavemakers or ultra-famous offerings like the Rolands and Yamahas.

This one is serial number 1533, and has no faults (apart from some of the writing).

Both books will be signed if you want (and you can let me know how you want them signed when you pay after the auction ends).

The total number of words in these two books is probably over half a million. With hundreds of illustrations, charts, etc., the whole package provides a comprehensive guide to analogue synths, organs, electric pianos, theremins, etc., up to 1998 for ones beginning A-M, and 2003 for the N-Zs. The books have been well-reviewed in magazines all round the world, and enjoyed by some of the best-known names in electronic music, such as Fatboy Slim (pictured reading the original A-M in one of the eBay photos), Hans Zimmer, Chemical Brothers, Human League, Depeche Mode, and Adrian Utley of Portishead.

Who's selling: my name's Peter Forrest. I've been writing about synths, keyboards, effects and recording gear for over 20 years now, and I run an internet auction called VEMIA (Vintage Electric Musical Instrument Auctions) which specialises in synths, drum machines, effects, and so on. Please check my feedback to see that you can bid with confidence. Feel free to email me any questions.

The books are not the actual ones in the photos, but would look identical.

Now is a very good time for anyone paying in dollars or yen to buy!

To give an indication of the scope of the books, here is a draft of the N-Z instrument index. Note that as the books are in alphabetical order of maker's names, there are none in this index.
