Collectable Violin Books For Sale


Recommended Posts

After 35 years in Seattle, I'm moving from my home and workshop to Portland, Oregon.
It's good time to pass on items I won't need and don't want to move.  

If you're interested in any of the following books please be in touch. I'm open to reasonable offers for any of these books and I'll be happy to send detailed photos if needed.
