    Edmund Bowles (born 1925) is a musicologist specializing in the history of the timpani and other musical instruments. This collection consists of photostats and photographic prints of musical iconography dating from 1300 through 1985, the bulk of which was created during the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries. It is especially rich in representations of percussion instruments, particularly the timpani, and includes a considerable amount of sacred imagery.
