"Timely...The book covers many important matters...and will be of particular value to performers of early music (and not just on the flute). Its great strength is its synthesis of information, developments and research.....Scrupulous in scholarship and generously illustrated with photographs."--Musical Times
From the Back Cover
The Early Flute is the first book in modern times to deal exclusively with the flutes used in the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical eras. The book details the history of the transverse flute from 1500 until the early nineteenth century. Advice is given on acquiring instruments and their care and maintenance. Additional chapters guide the reader to sources about relevant technique and style, recommend repertoire, and give general advice to the modern player. The text is enhanced by numerous photographs of important historic flutes.

It helped me with the history of my instrument for A level music and I would recommend it to all students who would like to find out about the history of this instrument.
