Overview

Originally published in the 1930s. A fascinating book describing the main outlines of such parts of science, both old and new, as are specially related to the questions and problems of music. It conveys such information in a simple non-technical manner making the subject matter of interest to both the amateur and serious student of music. The illustrated contents include detailed chapters on: Tuning Forks and Pure Tones – The Vibrations of Strings and Harmonies – The Vibrations of Air – Harmony and Discord – The Concert Room – Hearing etc. Many of the earliest music books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
