It is hardbound and contains 41 chapters, 125 photographs, 60 drawings and 18 patterns.From the Author:
Hans Weisshaar and I took on the big project of Violin Restoration because there had never been a comprehensive working manual written in our field. Nine years, 42 chapters of step-by-step instruction and 18 patterns later, it was available in the summer of 1989. We thought that the 2000 copies we printed would satisfy the world market for restoration. What we had not realized is how much of it can be applied in new making and in everyday "set up" work-- making bridges, planing fingerboards, etc.
So as the years have passed, proprietors of shops that sell trumpets as well as violins have been asked by their string repairmen to invest in this book. It is heartwarming to see that as we intended, our book is really turning out to be what we had hoped it would be--a gift to our craft.
