Collector's Corner:

While this one is dated 1918,
The Quinn-Dex was copyrighted in 1922 by Dr. Marcus Lucius Quinn and used as a part of a How to Learn Piano correspondence course offered through his Conservatory of Music in the Social Union Building, Boston, Massachusetts.

Moody Bible Institute of Chicago, 1917 - described this new flip book as such:

Learn Piano by Moving Pictures. Every action of fingers shown in motion before your eyes. Something Entirely New, Revolutionary.
Cuts Time and Cost in Half. Learn Right at Home in Spare Time.
If you want to learn piano or organ more rapidly and economically than was ever before possible be sure to send for our free booklet “How to Learn Piano or Organ.” No cost or obligation.

Dr, Quinn's famous written method, now including Quin-dex, brings right to your home, wherever you like, all the great advantages of conservatory study. The Quinn-dex, by an ingenious mechanical device, so easy a child can use it, shows the fingers in motion.
