“The great and intriguing bow maker, Jean Pierre Marie Persoit, has for many years been an inspiration to other bowmakers and to string musicians and connoisseurs fortunate enough to admire his creations. So little is known about Persoit that his surname has been written more often than not been written “Persois”. Beginning with his enigmatic brand, PRS the subject of Persoit may always retain a certain romantic mystery.
This monograph is in two parts, the first relating to the life of Persoit, the second discussing his bow making. After thoroughly researching the man and his work, I am pleased to offer my findings on Persoit as a tribute to his A reprint and update from the first edition on this great bowmaker including previously published biographical information.”
Featuring François Malo on the origin of the PRS brand-stamp and 46 bows by Persoit.
