Author Name    Jalovec, Karel.

Title   GERMAN AND AUSTRIAN VIOLIN MAKERS. (VIOLIN-MAKERS.)

Publisher    Paul Hamlyn, (London, 1967).

Seller ID   11428

439 pp. + 16 pp of measured drawings at rear, 4to (12" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w photographs of instruments, details, bows and labels, measured drawings, color frontispiece. "The main body of the text is devoted to a complete and authoritative alphabetical list of all the craftsmen known to have made violins or other stringed instruments as works of art in the German-speaking lands of Central Europe. It incorporates all the researches of earlier authorities, corrects some previous misconceptions, and sheds new light not only on established figures but also on the rising generation of 20th century makers. Each of over 4,000 makers is described in a brief biography, and there are comments on the style, tone and value of their instruments. There are over 800 photographs showing clearly the important points to look for in the work of the chief masters, and illustrating labels known to be authentic as an aid to identification, and there is an introduction outlining the growth of the major German schools...a complete historical survey of the subject, and traces the development of the craft in such famous centres as Markneukirchen, Mittenwald, the Tyrol, Vienna and Stuttgart. It draws a vivid picture of the nature of life and the changing structure of society in Central Europe during the centuries from the time when the violin developed from more primitive instruments right up to the present day." A few pages with either tiny corner creases, tiny corner chips or tiny corner tears - archivally taped; light edge wear to boards; sun fading to bottom edge of boards and spine. Dust jacket is complete, has moderate edge wear/wrinkling, a few very small chips/tears, small piece archivally taped at bottom of rear panel, light fading to spine area, small areas of de-lamination at edges, now protected in mylar sleeve.
