The instruments' historical development is explained in detail, followed by a description of valve systems, materials, and manufacturing techniques. Their capabilities and place in the orchestra--baroque, classical, modern, and jazz--are equally fully considered, and information is given about celebrated players. Apart from numerous photographs there are some sixty-six line drawings in the text.
