Change-Ringing Disentangled

Excerpt from Change-Ringing Disentangled: With Hints on the Direction of Belfries, on the Management of Bells, Etc; Etc; Etc This little book had its origin in a series of papers communicated to Church Bells, and subsequently republished. It was then limited to six bells, but dealt with six different systems of ringing. My aim in this Second Edition has been to produce a complete Manual for Beginners. I have, therefore, confined myself now to the two simplest methods of ringing; I have increased all the explanations very materially, and have extended the work to eight bells. Others must judge of my success. But I hope and believe that any one wholly ignorant of the subject can learn from the following pages all that a book can teach of simple ringing; and that he can acquire also the rudiments of conducting. At the same time I do not profess to save my reader all trouble. On the contrary, I warn him beforehand that ringing cannot be learned without considerable pains and attention, both at home and in the tower; and I stipulate that he deal with any treatise on the subject (whether mine or another) as a student deals with a paper on mathematics, namely, sit down to read the book attentively, and work out with his own pen every example given, whether it be printed in full or not. No man writing on bells at the present day can claim to be absolutely original. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
