Excerpt from Pianos: And Their Makers

N describing the origin and development of the pianoforte, notice has been taken only of such efforts and inventions as lent themselves to evolution, or have stood the test of time.

Therefore no mention is made of mere freak instruments, ancient or modern, nor of the many fruitless efforts of inventors whose aim seemed to be merely to produce something different, either for commercial reasons or to satisfy the cravings of their own imagined genius.

Great pains have been taken, however, to give full credit to those who successfully developed ideas which in their original crudeness seemed impracticable. It often happens, as in the case of the overstrung system, that an idea is born, tried, discarded, lies dormant for generations, before the genius appears who can render it adaptable for practical use.

It is to be regretted that we are still without guiding laws for the construction of the pianoforte, but the thinking piano maker of the present has the great advantage of past experiments from which to learn what not to do in his efforts to improve the piano.

The curiosity hunter, and student who desires more detailed information regarding past experiments in piano construction, will find entertaining and instructive reading in the various publi cations ou the pianoforte enumerated elsewhere.
