Principles of the Flute, Recorder and Oboe by Jacques-Martin Hotteterre
The finest flutist of his time and honored "Flûte de la Chambre du Roi" at the court of Louis XIV, Jacques-Martin Hotteterre (c. 1680–1760) wrote this instruction book for the transverse flute, recorder, and oboe. This treatise (originally titled Principes de la Flûte) was an important force in the competition between the flute and recorder and hastened the virtual extinction of the recorder as either an ensemble or solo instrument.
