Valve trombone methods

The valve trombone was probably more common in the nineteenth century than the slide trombone.
The exception was in Britain, where the slide instrument seems to have been more prominent. This
might have been because some brass band contests explicitly banned the use of valve trombones. The
nineteenth century saw the largest growth in the production of didactic method books, and, as the list
below suggests, French publications were in the forefront.
