Interesting Record: Harmonicon, The;

"In 1820 William Clowes, printer of the Harmonicon and other music, imported from Germany punches and matrices for music type and developed the technique they offered to real excellence in his own foundry."

According to VPR, The Harmonicon was "England's only distinguished journal devoted exclusively to music at this time."
