Description

This convenient and attractive guide lists ancient to contemporary musical instruments and gives both history and technical information. Many illustrations, both drawings and photographs help to clarify the text. Coverage is international; it includes not only instruments limited to one region, but also has longer articles for countries/continents, which discuss the kind of instruments developed there. Instrument makers appear in an appendix. Highly recommended for secondary collections.
