C16-17th iconography

scan221  46 l5

Anthony Baines had a deep interest in historical musical instruments, and folder 46 L5 contains pages of notes listing the types of instruments played in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (and earlier) and where their iconography could be found. Some of these notes come with sketches from manuscripts Baines had viewed—in this case the drawings were then sellotaped onto the A4 page in his notes.
