El Bibliomata has a wonderful Flickr collection of old etchings they've scanned. Part of it is a series of etchings of musical instruments. These examples, and the ones after the jump, are taken from that collection. Enlarge them to see details of the etching.

There are many more etchings of instruments at El Bibliomata's, as well as etchings of many other subjects. If you go there be prepared to spend a long time browsing through the collection -- it's a large one.
