This catalogue of musical instruments made by 120-odd makers of the 16th through the 19th centuries contains information on many heretofore unknown or unreported examples.Phillip T. Young member of the Board of Governors of the American Musical Instrument Society and editor of The Look of Music the Vancouver Centennial Musical Instrument Collection Catalogue has personally inspected more than three-quarters of these instruments in major museums as well as in private collections so s mall that they do not appear in even the most recent directories. The combination of his two short inventories (The Galpin Society Journal 1967 1978) intensified research reader contributions and the incorporation of other less-complete listings has enabled Prof. Young to compile a research tool that is unequaled in thoroughness and the majority of which has not been previously available. Also included are a number of photographs of instruments of special interest making this a beautiful as well as valuable volume.
