Review: Antique Musical Instruments and Their Players

User Review  - Luke - Goodreads

A great collection of reproduced etchings from a musical bestiary. The text isn't original - it's new for the book - but the images (though sometimes flawed) are incredible. Fine detail and a great reference for instruments that for the most part are no longer played. Read full review
