Joan Rimmer’s book is an important study of Irish harp history, and has remained a standard reference since it was first published in 1969. It includes halftone photos of some of the old harps, as well as some lists of technical details, and it discusses the different sources for Irish harp history. 80 pages. Originally published in paperback as vol.XVI of the “Irish Life and Culture” series, it was reprinted twice, in 1977 and 1984, with very minor additions / corrections, and different cover designs.
