Les Guimbardes du musée de l'homme

written by Geneviève Dournon-Taurelle & John Wright

This book in French language is one of the rare scientific classics about the Jew's Harp (guimbarde). Based on the collection of the ethnological institiute of the "Musée de l'Homme" (part of the French National Museum of Natural History) Geneviève Dournon-Taurelle and John Wright draw a well-structured, comprehensive picture of Jew's Harps from various cultures and periods from many perspectives.

The first chapters cover general topic like acoustic, mechanics, various playing techniques and the classification of the guimbardes (jew's harps) as musical instruments. The second part of the book is a comprehensive, richly illustrated catalog of Jew's Harps from all over the world. The instruments are not only shown, classified and typified, but the book also shows impressivly their origin, cultural backgrounds, making and usage. The catalog contains many historical models and single items, too. This book is a rich source and genial reference work about Jew's Harps (guimbardes)!
