Hello all. Well, my first post here since joining a while back. I have been looking - to no avail - for books concerning the building of Viol De Gambas. The main treatise I can come up with is: Building a Treble Viola Da Gamba: A Detailed Step-by-Step Guide by Wolfgang Bottenberg Save that I can not find it anywhere -it is seemingly out of print and has been for some time. I have seen it in a luthier Library but I am in Sydney and the Library is in America. Does Anyone have any good sources of information for building the various Gemba's? (I have watched many, many you tube videos, but they only take one so far....). I have found this publication - "Viola Da Gamba by Nathalie Dolmetsch" is anyone here familiar with it and it's contents? I actually do have some Gamba plans on the way , and additionally, I have books on Double Bass construction. But books specifically Gamba? no Luck. If anyone can help or suggest some good sources, I would be eternally grateful. If anyone has this Bottenberq book and would like to part with/sell it, then again, I would be eternally grateful. Thank You for taking the time to read. I figured that this would be the best place to ask, it's such a great site and I have learned so much here. Sincerely William
