This is the best book on bagpipe history I have found. Approximately half of the book deals with bagpipe history prior to the development of the great highland pipes. If GHP are your interest, then perhaps look elsewhere. The book covers extensive archeological and textual research going back to early pipes in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and elsewhere in Europe. While this is a scholarly read, its style is somewhat dated (published in 1975). I actually found this to be charming.
