Timpani Supplement I: More Pictures and Documents (Pendragon Press Musicological)

This addendum to The Timpani: A History in Pictures and Documents (PP 487) contains 100 new drawings, paintings, and photographs, and many new documents to fill out a unique iconographical and documentary history of the timpani.

The two volumes combine a wealth of pictorial material with extensive written sources and offer a rich and comprehensive survey of the instrument's history from the Middle Ages to the present. In so doing they fill a gap of long standing in the published literature of kettledrums by providing for the first time a combination of visual and descriptive evidence.
