First published in 1969, Grunfeld's book is as fun to read as any on the history of the guitar, and at the same time packed with interesting facts and information. It clearly places the guitar in the confusing family tree of lutes, citterns, and other cousin stringed instruments, then traces its history right up into the 1960's folk revival. Full of anecdotes and biographical details about the major figures, schools, movements, developments.... 340 pages, with hundreds of illustrations.
