    Linky. 486 pages.

    Looks kewl, but it also looks like you've got that mouthpiece on upside down ....

    ===========

    http://www.scribd.com has a lot of kewl stuff. They describe their website as, "The World’s Largest Online Library." I think that might actually be correct, unless Google Books has a few more.

    Hmm..."Do you want to share your reading list with your Facebook friends."

    Nothing could go wrong there...

    Reed uppermost...

    ...was once au courant with discriminating Italian clarinetists, or so I have read.

    I can't abide the upward reed, myself. But, I'm too old and set in my ways. Besides, my upper lip gets enough of a workout playing the bassoon once or twice a year, much less clarinet on an ongoing basis.

    I've got the book, and it's a fairly comprehensive (if somewhat dry) coverage of the topic. It should be in the library of anyone interested in the history and development of the clarinet.
