Internal bore profiles of recorders are shown diagramataically by Loretto (1995) who has quite rightly cautioned against the practice of extrapolating the bore of a recorder from an illustration of its external profile and, to some extent, the context in which it is depicted.
Virdung also illustrates a pair of recorders, of which the thumb-holes are clearly indicated and on one of which the appropriate finers are numberd.
