Footnotes

  • See Meredith Morris; British Violin Makers 1920; "An excellent amateur who has made several beautiful violins on the models of Stradivari and Guarneri. The quality of his workmanship and the tone of his instruments are of so fine a description that it is a pity he does not devote the whole of his time to the craft."
