About This Item

Oxford, England: Oxford University Press, 1973. Reprint Edition. Softcover. Good. Sturdy, still tightly bound softcover copy, moderate wear of covers, slight damp-staining to bottom of first few pages of text-block, but with neither underlining nor highlighting elsewhere, and faint stain not affecting text. Perfectly readable, usable copy. “Revised Edition” of an original essay, published here as Occasional Papers on Technology, 9, T. K. Penniman and B.M. Blackwood, eds. Original publisher’s beige wrappers. 7 1/4” x 10.” 142 pp. Ninety-two black-and-white illustrations. Sixteen half-tone plates in the back. Covers have extensive smudges but they do not affect readability of the text. A solidly Good copy, but the interior is quite nice. Contents: “Preface,” “List of Illustrations,” “Introduction,” “The Bagpipe and Its Components,” “Primitive Bagpipers and Hornpipes,” “Bagpipes of Eastern Europe,” “The Zampogna,” “Bagpipes of Western Europe,” “Musette and Small-Pipe,” and “Addenda and Corrigenda (1973).” Protected in stiff Mylar. Thomas Penniman and Beatrice Blackwood were well known English ethnologists and ethnographers. Their warm Preface recounts that Anthony Baines was one of the founding members of the Galpin Society, and for several decades (born in 1812 and died in 1997) produced a wide variety of definitive works on the history of musical instruments, becoming in the process an “organologist.” This work was published originally in 1960. Member, I.O.B.A., C.B.A., and adherent to the highest ethical standards. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
