Bagpipes of Praetorius' Syntagma

These images come from Michael Praetorius' Syntagma published in 1618. This is the bible for instrument makers who wish to make replica instruments and a great historical resource. Apparently he didn't think much of bagpipes and their music though.

Only the first and last images have bigger pictures to jump to.
