W.E. Hill & Sons Violin Makers 1880-1936, by John Basford and Tim Toft

W.E. Hill and Sons was Britain’s most important violin dealership in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century and, during this period, became renowned throughout the world for its expertise in instrument identification and repair. This new book gives a clear photographic and documentary record of instrument making at W.E Hill and Sons, from its inception in the early 1880s to 1936, when the first phase of production ended and the last instrument from that first phase of production was recorded in the original sales ledger.   Read the review, The Strad, May 2020
