The book dev A history of the guitar, illustrated with extensive historical engravings and paintings. The book concentrates on the development of the early guitar toward the classical guitar, although it includes a few illustrations and includes a chapter on other genres. Virtuosos from this period include Giuliani, but also Paganini who devoted several early years to the guitar and wrote much music for it. Moving into the late half of the 19th century, the author looks at Berlioz - whose primary instrument was the guitar, and thought the pianoforte a "terrible instrument".

The Guitar from the Renaissance to the Present Day followed the publication of various informative books on guitar history, such as Frederic V. Grunfeld’s The Art and Times of the Guitar (1969) and Alexander Bellow’s The Illustrated History of the Guitar (1970). Unlike Grunfeld and Bellow, however, Turnbull decided to begin his history of the guitar with the Renaissance as a starting point, as it is only at this period that one can consider the guitar in relation to its music.

THIS IS NOT AN ORDINARY HISTORY BOOK. IT IS SO ENTERTAININGLY WRITTEN THAT ONE IS NOT AT ALL AWARE OF LEARNING THE HISTORY OF THE GUITAR, ITS EVOLUTION THROUGH THE VARIOUS HUMAN EPOCHS, ITS USES AND IMPORTANCE IN VARIOUS CULTURES THROUGH THE AGES. ITS HISTORY IS TRACED FROM ITS EARLIEST PREHISTORIC INCEPTION (ILLUSTRATED WITH QUAINT GUITAR PREDECESSORS AND PROTOTYPES) AND CONTINUES UP TO AND INCLUDING THE GUITAR'S ROLE IN MODERN TIMES.

THE BOOK IS RICHLY ILLUSTRATED, WELL-WRITTEN AND SCHOLARLY BUT NEVER DRY OR STUFFY. ON THE CONTRARY, IT IS FREQUENTLY PUNCTUATED WITH DROLLERY AND HIGH HUMOR. THIS WRITING WILL STIMULATE, AMUSE, EDUCATE, AND ENLIGHTEN. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT TO ALL WHO LOVE MUSIC, ESPECIALLY THOSE WITH AN INTEREST IN THE GUITAR.
