In addition to information on violin performances and performers, the magazine carried detailed and informative essays on classic violin makers of the past; the best known of these were Doring's long articles, which were published in book form as How Many Strads? (Chicago, 1945) and The Guadagnini Family of Violin Makers (Chicago, 1949)." Philip J. Kass in Grove Music Online.A cornerstone of the literature. Bookseller Inventory # 29582

Item Description: William Lewis & Son, Chicago, 1945. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Not Issued. First Edition Limited. 1945 First Edition, Limited to 1400 copies of which this is number 1293. Author inscribed in blue pen on first blank page, "To our esteemed colleague Hans Nebel, Esq. with warm regards. Ernest N. Doring." (Hans Nebel Sr. - a renowned violin maker). VERY GOOD+ hardcover bound in red leatherette with gilt and black stamping on spine and front cover, red endpapers. Other than the inscription and penned limitation number, the book is unmarked. Publisher's Errata Sheet is tipped onto the second blank page. Pages are fresh and clean; the top edge brightly gilt. There is faint scuff to the front pasted endpaper, likely from a removed bookplate. The cover is lightly rubbed at spine ends and corner tips, but is otherwise clean and fine, the stamping bright and strong. Binding is firm and straight. There is a slipcase (stiff boards covered in pale or faded red paper) but it is in poor/fair condition as masking tape was used to hold the joints together and covers the entire spine and most of edges. It still does a good job protecting the book. In honor of Stradivarius's tercentenary, Doring created this carefully researched history of the maker and compilation of surviving instruments. It is printed on fine cream-colored coated paper with carefully printed black and white photographs of dozens of violins as well as four violas, twelve cellos, 1 viola da gamba, one violini-piccolo and four violins by sons of Stradivarius. Included is a summary of his works, a bibliography and an index. 8 x 10-3/4". 379 pages. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 006342

Item Description: Bein & Fushi, Chicago, 1999. Thick Quarto. Enlarged and Expanded Edition. 464 pages. While the 1945 edition was a great contribution, this new expanded edition is the definitive reference for those at the highest level of understanding Strads for whom expertise is essential. Not only is it issued in a far superior binding and high quality paper but with the research of Charles Beare and Peter Biddulph along with Harry Benson there is an improved text. Of course, it is the four additional chapters containing histories and photographs of violins not previously illustrated in any of the violin literature as well as exploring the cellos from Stradivari's last years that are part of its major contribution as well as containing several newly illustrated instruments. These new photographs are mostly from the archives of Bein & Fushi. Finally, the bibliography lists all the major contributions since the original 1945 edition as well as the location and seventy-five items not found in Herbert Goodkind's "Violin Iconography of Antonio Strativari". The index and extensive updated bibliography complete what is a major contribution to violin literature. A fine bright copy bound in red cloth lettered and decorated in black and gilt, spine black and gilt, decorative endpapers. An exceptionally nice copy. Bookseller Inventory # 025162
