“A History of the Violin Bow” is a collection of classic articles on the subject of the violin, with a particular focus on the bow. The articles explore a range of topics from the history and origins of the violin, to notable makers, rare examples, and beyond. This volume is highly recommended for violin players and those with an interest in the history of this wonderful instrument. Contents include: “Old Violins and Violin Lore, by H. R. Haweis”, “The Fiddler Fancier's Guide, by James M. Fleming”, “History of the Violin”, and “Catalog of Rare Old Violins, Violas, and Violoncellos – Also Bows of Rare Makers, by Lyon and Healy”. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on the history of the violin.
