It has strengthened its traditional appeal for amateur music-makers and, in addition has achieved an unprecedented stature on the concert platform at the hands of such masters as Andres Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams. Its present position is being consolidated by the ever-increasing repertory of music expressly conceived for it. Harvey Turnbull, himself a professional and specialised scholarship to tracing the instruments development from its lowly beginnings in the sixteenth century when it had to compete with the more aristocratic vihuela, viola de mano and lute, through the times of neglect and gradual recognition to its present day eminence.

The author pieces together, drawing extensively on contemporary written and pictorial sources, the intricate development of the guitars structure, the various playing techniques favoured through the centuries, the music created for the instrument and its changing role in musical life throughout Western Europe since the Renaissance.
