The Kurt Adler Miniature Music Box Book

It’s not a valuable book but I’ve wanted one since it appeared in Anne Bromer and Julian Edison’s book “Miniature Books, 4,000 Years of Tiny Treasures.

Kurt S. Adler produced at least two miniature music box books, this one, “The Nutcracker Suite” in 1977 and the one pictured in Bromer/Edison, “Christmas Carols” in 1985.


At 2 5/8 x 2 5/8 it is definitely a miniature book and the smallest musical movement I’ve seen. It has eleven pages, a red ribbon bookmark, and like all Kurt Adler books, a string loop to use as an ornament.
