"Part one deals with the existing woodwind instruments (including many related species found in bands of various kinds but not in orchestras). Part two (History) is concerned with early forms of the woodwind instruments and with their precursors, many of these being described in considerable technical detail, though no finality is claimed for the rules and conclusions given; practical musical study in ancient, exotic and primitive wind instruments is still a young branch of musicology in which fresh discoveries are being made every year."—Preface.
