Bagting -- The valuation of time and memory in Spanish colonial Philippines. Author: Regalado Trota Jose
Bagting traces the development of bell culture through more than three centuries of Spanish colonial rule in the Philippines. A context for the introduction of bells in the 16th century is followed by sections on bell production and the role of bells in colonial Philippine life, a history of bell foundries, and a descriptive list of bell casters. The book is profusely illustrated with images taken from the field, evidence of what was once a flourishing industry in the Philippines.
