  1. Thanks, that's very informative!
  2. What makes it look French? Can you tell the building method from the pics of the ribs?
  3. Vol. 2 is mainly an alphabetic dictionary of makers. Vol. 1 is a book about violin making history and traditions in general, the way I understand it. If I remember correctly, Jacob Saunders posted somewhere that "vol. 1 is the one worth learning German for"
  4. I found two versions of Lütgendorff vol. 2 online. Here are some links for your enjoyment. Original scans, downloadable as PDF: https://archive.org/details/diegeigenundlau00vongoog/mode/2up?view=theater https://archive.org/details/diegeigenundlaut02lt/page/n5/mode/2up?view=theater Text only. Some errors from conversion to text: https://archive.org/stream/diegeigenundlau00vongoog/diegeigenundlau00vongoog_djvu.txt https://archive.org/stream/diegeigenundlaut02lt/diegeigenundlaut02lt_djvu.txt Google translations of the above into English. Some weird translation effects, but mostly useable. It takes some time for the whole translation to load. Looks like it starts from the top and works itself down: https://archive-org.translate.goog/stream/diegeigenundlau00vongoog/diegeigenundlau00vongoog_djvu.txt?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-US&_x_tr_pto=wapp https://archive-org.translate.goog/stream/diegeigenundlaut02lt/diegeigenundlaut02lt_djvu.txt?_x_tr_sl=de&_x_tr_tl=en&_x_tr_hl=en-US&_x_tr_pto=wapp If anyone knows where I can find a digital copy of vol 1 or 3, I'm all ears!
  5. When you say "they", do you refer to makers of the cottage industry in Saxony?
  6. Not an expert, but those ribs don't look pinched to me. Doesn't that exclude built on back?
  7. Thanks! You're probably right. What is the most important giveaway? Is it the style of writing or the paper or something else?
  8. Absolutely! I will post pictures of the violin later. I just don't have my DSLR right now. I too have a bunch of old violins with silly labels, but this one is different. It looks very old and has a ton of repairs. 1660 could be possible by the look of it.
  9. Hello! Can anybody make sense of anything on this label? A name, a year, a place, anything... Sorry about the picture quality. It was very hard to photograph through the f-hole. Thanks!
  10. @Blank face Thanks for your informative posts. Are you talking about the method that Jacob describes in this thread? Do you see evidence of that construcion method in the photos?
  11. Good points about using them for repairs. Thanks folks
  12. So does anybody know a good source for dead pets and raccoons then?
