Violins
The order has been altered from the original to accomodate the combination of listings made in different contexts and on different pages. Entries in bold denote the Hill's "final choice" of examples that they felt, in 1932, were particularly superior instruments. Certain instruments listed are discussed in Chapter V ("...The Tonal Aspect") but page references have been omitted here.
