The sales page still says 6 March 2022, that is the first date of the first edition. But when it says 87 pages you know it’s the new one.

What’s new inside? The chapters on surviving instruments and on treatises are wider, and the history one was updated with what we understood from our trip to Markneukirchen last March. There are now 3 appendices with the charts of Bsch’s Cantatas involving the Violoncello da Spalla, the treatises all at hand in illustrated versions, and suggested readings.

If you are a luthier, this book is a comprehensive summary of what you need to promote your instrument. If you are player, it contains a great starting point for your adventure, and all the answers to the “whaaaat?” faces you will encounter.

It’s not a technical reading, it’s quite fun actually, but it issues many technical aspects.

So, here again the link button to the sales page on Amazon:
