There is a book in German, if you want to add that to your list, too. It's simply called "Die Okarina" and was written by Anton Hirschmugl in 1998. Unfortunately I can't find it any longer on the website of its publisher "Steirisches Volksliedwerk". (Their website is www.steirisches-volksliedwerk.at and they also offer some ocarina books with traditional Austrian music.)

Thanks Poltergeist. I've added it to the list.

Mark, is it possible you can translate the title, too? I ran the title through Google translate, and I think the translation is mangled.

I would translate it as: "Ocarina Story: The Sound of Earth"
Earth as in clay or dirt - not the planet.
Timbre's actually a the right word, but I like sound better, lol. :D
What sounds better? "Ocarina Story: The Timbre of Earth" or "Ocarina Story: The Sound of Earth"? Lol, this is how things get lost in translation.

I'll add the Adversi book the list. I do have the "From Mud to Music" book, but only about 4 pages of its 258 pages is on the ocarina history, so I'm not sure it should make the list.

Yes, Claudio wrote his book in Italian first, then later came out with an English version.

Here is something depressing:

http://discover.nls.uk/default.ashx?q=ocarina&search-box-submit=go&searchtype=1&cx=004988112283334510717%3Alqhse3e39qi&ie=UTF-8

That's what Scotland's largest reference library has on the ocarina.

Apart from a couple of Zelda-related titles, ALL of it is products of Liggins's primary-school pendant industry.

On the other hand if you search their sound recordings section via Google you get this:

http://www.google.com/cse?q=ocarina&search-box-submit=go&searchtype=1&cx=004988112283334510717%3Alqhse3e39qi&ie=UTF-8#gsc.tab=0&gsc.q=ocarina&gsc.page=1

which gives you Willie Kemp's recordings from the 1930s, which are real music (and done on a real ocarina, I suspect either a Fiehn or a Mathieu).

Oh ! I have the same book ! Ocarina No Monogatari , Nendo no Onshoku
It comes with a CD with Old Ocarina Performans from Italian and old Ocarina players and Groups. A Lot of pictures inside too.

In my own opinión, The best Word that fits perfectly for this Title is NENDO that means CLAY because Japanese people always refer to clay to express not only Ceramic clay but something coming from Land, ground....one of the four elements ON EARTH The Word EARTH is much more wide and not enough concise for this book.
