Dated, of limited use. Perhaps of historical interest.

Despite the assertion in the sub-title, there is no simple and accurate method by which amateurs may learn to tune a piano properly. The system of using Fifths and Octaves which the book recommends is perhaps rather cumbersome, and it is no easy thing to learn to hear and adjust beat rates in any case. The information on repair and regulation is very limited, although to be fair the title refers only to tuning. However, amateurs wanting to learn about tuning would do better to buy Reblitz' book, a standard text.
