My interest in violins is growing past the playing aspect, and moving into the realm of instruments. I'm of the "dark" side, with an immense passion for Guarneri instruments. I was wondering if any of you had any suggestions for things to read or look into.
Specifically, I've been trying to find a copy of: The Violin Masterpieces of Guarneri del Gesù by Peter Biddulph. It is the catalog of the 1994 exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art commemorating the 250th anniversary of his death. Can't seem to find it anywhere.
Also, I was trying to show a friend the "unique"-ness of the Lord Wilton's scroll, but I can't seem to find any good pictures of that instrument.
Appreciate any help you all can provide. :)
