This ingenious book allows children to hear over 70 musical instruments from around the world. Simply take one of the 4 cards (each features 9 words and pictures on each side) out of the envelope and insert it into the slot as instructed. Press ´go´ and then press a picture to hear how the instrument sounds.
These Handbooks are reprints of the dissertations prefixed to the large catalogues of the chief divisions of works of art in the Museum at South Kensington; arranged and so far abridged as to bring each into a portable shape. The Lords of the Committee of Council on Education having determined on the publication of them, the editor trusts that they will meet the purpose intended; namely, to be useful, not alone for the collections at South Kensington but for other collections, by enabling the public at a trifling cost to understand something of the history and character of the subjects treated of. The authorities referred to in each book are given in the large catalogues; where will also be found detailed descriptions of the very numerous examples in the South Kensington Museum. W. M.
