This revised edition has an updated descriptive text, features 15 extra entries, devotes at least two full-colour spreads to each instrument, and is supplemented with a new dendrochronological study. Specially-commissioned photography displays each violin, viola or cello with large, high-quality illustrations, revealing details of these instruments as never before."--Jacket
