This splendid volume of different instruments built by the celebrated French master violin-maker Jean Baptiste Vuillaume, includes models by Stradivari, Guarneri, Maggini and Amati in life-size. The edition was put together to honour 200 years since the birth of Jean Baptiste Vuillaume, celebrated in the Cité de la Musique in Paris.

“Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume was just 19 years old when he arrived in Paris from his native town of Mirecourt. Trained in violin making by his father, he began an association with Nicolas- Antoine Lété and François Chanot before establishing his own workshop in 1825. He would eventually become the most successful maker and dealer of the 19th century, famous not only for his bench copies of Italian violin masterpieces, but also for employing and nurturing most of the finest French bow makers of the time.”

David Bonsey, September, 2018, The Strad

The one-off work, produced and edited by Jost Thoene Verlag, includes a foreword by Bernard Millant, Christoph Landon and Serge Boyer as well as essays by Stefan-Peter Greiner and Florian Leonhard in German, English and French. CT and X-ray scans as well as exact measurements and labels is a unique masterpiece.
