PLEASE DO NOT SEND ADDITIONAL ENTRIES. The entries published here are only the ones for which I have somewhat respectable bibliographic entries at this time. I have much more information for these and for additional entries which will be added as I get around to it. I didn't set out to compile a bibliography -- or, more properly, an iconography. This list is just what happens to be lying about the house. It is very much a work in progress, but if I waited until everything was perfect, it would never appear.
However, I would appreciate corrections -- wrong page references, for example. Send corrections to
University of New Hampshire

I am singularly error-prone, alas, and I am sure that there are numerous mistakes in this list. Sorry. I am quite capable of looking squarely at page 256 and writing down page 276, and I seem to have a little trouble telling right from left. I hope the benefits oughtway the frustration.
A few late entries didn't make the index. Sorry.
I thought that I had been careful to distinguish between tambourines (with heads) and jingle rings (open hoops), but it is clear that I was not. Thus, all jingle rings are jingle rings (that much I got right), but some tambourines will turn out to be jingle rings as well. Sorry. Eventually I'll get it straightened out.
The purpose of this iconography is to answer the question "Where can I find an illustration of ...?" I have included only works of art for which there is a published reproduction (plus some that are in the Visual Collection, Fine Arts Library, Harvard University and a few in the Bild-Archiv Photo Marburg).
Many thanks to the UHN Music Department for putting this index on their web page.
