Information for when you travel. By country and city, you are guided to the best instrument collections in Europe. For each site is provided a substantial discussion of the instruments, location, address, and hours of admission. There are abundant black and white (many full-page) photos, a glossary of terms associated with earlier instruments, and an index of makers." -Piano & Keyboard

Growing out of the authors' visits to 47 collections in Europe, this lively guidebook offers intimate glimpses at a great variety of instruments. It focuses on the more important and unusual holdings in each museum, such as the Cristofori pianos in Rome and Leipzig and the earliest known English double-manual instrument-a 1700 harpsichord by Tisseran, now in Oxford. In addition, the authors provide travelers with essential information for each museum.
