Posted on June 24, 2014January 27, 2019 by Graeme McMillan maisonimmonen: On this day (or possibly the 28th) in 1846, Adolphe Sax, inventor of the Saxocannon, patented the saxophone. This is how it happened. We know because we were there. This is so amazingly wonderful. Can we get a book of this kind of thing, please?
