A guitar maker, violin maker, and professor of French have collaborated to make this important resource available to a broader audience. Originally published in Paris in 1834, the Manuel du Luthier, or Luthier’s Manual, details the construction of the violin, other members of the violin family, bows, and the guitar. This book is based on the first edition published in Paris. The original French text has been included along with the English translation.
