This is a great reference book for anyone who is interested in researching or collecting wind instruments. It was first published in 1960 as ‘An Index of Musical Wind-Instrument Makers’ and then was revised and published again in 1993 with its new title.

A foreward on makers’ marks is provided by Herbert Heyde and the book also contains a list of cited collections and libraries, a glossary and a large bibliography.
