  1. No its still available. Ive decided to take the Biddulph set off of here as it seems most here are looking for less expensive books, which is understandable especially during a pandemic. I had it priced at what i thought would have been attractive price but it didn't generate any interest so I put it on eBay for a higher price/obo. At the moment, Im in no rush to sell it. Glad your happy with your purchase! Thx!
  2. Thanks Nick, i noted that price. That is helpful.
  3. My translated to English Sacconi book was published in 2000. Regarding the Courtnal.. im almost certain I paid $275 about 20 years ago but it was 20 years ago. When currently Chinese soft covers are selling for $100, to me $350 for a pristine hardcover doesn't seem like a bad investment but with all this hub bub over the price Ill lower it yet again to $275. This copy i am selling is a hardcover in excellent condition. Whether or not it is important I suppose depends on the importance it is to the builder. Personally i referred to it with every violin, viola or cello i made. Unless your blessed with a photographic memory or if your constantly making which i wasnt because i ran a full service shop as well, it is essential to have a builders reference though perhaps there are better ones to be found out there, im not sure. Pretty important to me regardless. Thanks!
  4. I just found the Francois Denis on his site and he is selling the book for what is equivalent to $250 USA dollars. Shipping to USA along with customs tax is probably around $50? I will sell my copy complete with posters and ruler for $200 including shipping to continental USA excluding Alaska. Excellent condition. That should save you about $100. Happy to send pics to whoever is interested.
  5. wow first they went for “like a hundred bucks on ebay” and now you got yours for $40..? Yeah i guess you were very lucky or...something. I paid $275 for my new copy in 2001. The one i am selling is another copy i happen to have and like most of the other books i am selling, its in pristine condition. And again, if they are readily available at a certain price please show me proof of that and ill be happy to adjust my price. Considering the current rarity, inflation and the excellent condition of this book I think the adjusted price of $350 is quite fair.
  6. If you would have read my post, you would notice a ? by the price, which means I did not have anything to go by and I was guessing based on its rarity these days. At least I couldn’t find it. I couldn’t find any comps on eBay or Amazon either. It’s hard to find and unavailable. I’ll adjust the price to $350. It is in like new condition.
