Exclusive Privilegium (patent).


Her Majesty did grant the following privilegium on 10. of February:


First: [...]


Second: to Anton Reinlein, "bürgerlicher" musical clock maker and his sun Rudolph Reinlein, at Vienna Address: "Vorstadt an der Wien Nr. 32", for the >>improvment of producing of the "Harmonika auf Chinesische Art", since this Instrument is only tree feet long, and twelve Inches in width and fifteen Inches deep, a deep (note) of 8 foot reaches.(?) Equipped with a keyboard fifteen Inches in width for playing with a free hand, the sound is strong in forte and in piano ... with Expression playable, ...


(Very difficult to translate because it is old German writing.) But notice the dimensions of the instrument. One Inch (Zol) at that time in Austria was ≈ 26,34 mm. one foot = 12 Inch. 3 feet to 12 inch to 15 Inch = 94 cm 31,6 cm 39,5 cm Keyboard length 39,5 cm


keeping this in mind it war a rather big instrument to keep in ones hand! So on the other side for a Instrument like chest or table it was quite small.
