A Treasury of Archaeological Bells- Nathaniel Spear, Jr. 1978

A compilation of photos and descriptions of bells of the ancient world containing material very difficult to find elsewhere - much of it published for the first time here. Treats archaeological bells from 50 cultures and provides background information to set the artistic and technical points of fabrication in context. Contains much discussion of the migration of bells and a bit of speculation based on the perplexing "strong resemblance of many crotals cast by certain Indians of Mexico to those of the Ashanti of Ghana, as well as a similarity between crotals from Indochina and Mexico, suggesting trans-oceanic migration of bells in pre-Columbian times.
