The Story of the World's Largest Pipe Organ
by Stephen D. Smith
Hardback, 523 pages, ISBN 0-9708494-4-3

This astonishingly comprehensive guide to the Atlantic City Convention Hall's Midmer-Losh organ contains almost every detail concerning the instrument, including a wealth of information never before published. Hard facts and personal opinions are brought together in an almost story-like format that includes historical information, technical details, stop lists, and biographies of people involved. There are over 300 photographs, diagrams, and tables including a master stop list. The organ's original, even larger design is detailed, as are the various conflicts and controversies surrounding the instrument. One chapter is devoted to its designer, Emerson Richards, and another deals with the history of the Midmer-Losh organ building firm. An index is included for easy referencing.
