"The finest violins ever made - more than a thousand masterpieces by Stradivari and his contemporaries, including most of the instruments treasured by today's great artists - would have remained lost to the world of music but for Luigi Aarision, an Italian whose lifelong search for them is here told for the first time." (from the front cover)
Orignal red clother a bit mottled and frayed at edges and spine. All four DJ corners are neatly clipped. A bit of wear to crown of DJ spine.
