This is the seventeenth of a series of reviews of significant new research on the recorder. By "research" Lasocki means anything written about the recorder that advances our knowledge of the instrument, its depiction in works of art, makers, making, players, playing technique, performance practice and repertory, in the past of present. He has surveyed as many periodicals and books in English, Dutch, French, Spanish, German and Italian published during 2005 as he could readily obtain (in addition, a few earlier items have reached him).
