Many standard musicological reference works document the use of the trombone from its beginning to the middle of the 17th century, and then from Mozart to the present, but few deal with the intervening years. This book reproduces the texts from two dozen treatises, dictionaries, and encyclopedias, along with English translations, published between 1697 and 1811. It provides an overview of the use of the trombone during that time in America and seven European countries and examines its use in choral music, opera, symphonic music and military music.

The trombone and its music in the 17th and 19th centuries - an introduction; writings about the trombone in 18th century treatises, encyclopedias, and dictionaries; an overview of the trombone in the 18th century (excluding France); the trombone and trombone music in France; the trombone in choral music; the trombone in opera; the trombone in the concert orchestra; the trombone in military music.
