The present catalogue is concerned only with the first of these three sections, it being the intention to describe the second and third in later issues. For the convenience of the visitor, a word as to the contents and general arrangements of the divisions temporarily omitted, has been added at the close of the introduction.
The entire East wall of the Gallery is devoted to the display of the African instruments, which now number some 300 specimens. Beginning at the centre (case 53) With the simplest form of stringed instruments, the Musical Bow, the development of this class is followed, to the right, through its various stages to those examples, found in Egypt and the North, which Show a marked oriental inﬂuence in form and decoration.
The types of stringed instruments represented are the same as those found in the European instruments: the Harp, the Psaltery, the Lute, the Dulcimer, and the Viol. Many examples of each of these types are shown, with the single exception of the Dulcimer, which is apparently unknown to the African races, although its prototype is found in those forms of the musical bow in which the sound is produced by striking the string; and the principle is again suggested in the Marimba, where hammers are used in conjunction with vibrating slabs of wood.
