About the author (1985)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City needs no introduction. It is the preeminent art museum in the Americas and rivaled by few European museums. In fact, for sheer quality and breadth of collection, it has no equal.

Libin is the Frederick P. Rose Curator in Charge of Musical Instruments at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
