Hal Leonard
Available for the first time in English, this book has been considered the best single encyclopedia of the violin for 20 years. All aspects of the violin are covered: construction, history, and literature; violin playing and teaching; and violin virtuosos through the ages.

Book News
A translation of the fifth edition (1993) of a German work (Das Buch der Violine), which was first published in 1972. This edition has been revised especially for English speakers, and the title has been expanded to reflect the fact that it goes beyond the original and includes new and updated material. Coverage includes details of all aspects of the violin, including construction, evolution, master violin makers, virtuoso performers, famous composers, performance techniques, and pedagogical philosophy. Not intended as a violin-making manual or as a musical teaching text, but rather as an encyclopedic overview of the violin. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
