Building a harpsichord library

Spent a little time doing some book research (a list of books that might be interesting to obtain over time):

  1. A Plain and Easy Introduction to the Harpsichord by Ruth Nurmi
  2. Harpsichord Method: for Harpsichord or Spinet by Maria Boxall
  3. L’Art De Toucher Le Clavecin. The Art of Playing the Harpsichord by Francois Couperin
  4. A Guide to the Harpsichord by Ann Bond
  5. Playing the Harpsichord by Howard Schott
  6. Three Centuries of Harpsichord Making by Frank Hubbard
  7. A History of the Harpsichord by Edward Kottick
  8. Ruckers: A Harpsichord and Virginal Building Tradition by Grant O’Brien

OK, so I’ve actually purchased all of them at this point, except the Nurmi book. I do enjoy books very much and having a harpsichord library is helpful for historical reference and context.
