I am the author of THE RED BOOK, Auction Guide of Authentic Stringed Instruments and Bows.

My publications are a comprehensive public record of auction prices paid for violin-family instruments and bows. They feature worldwide sale results from the major auction houses of Austria, England, France, Germany, Italy, and the United States from 1985 to 2012 and each contains over 30,000 auction sales representing the works of more than 4,500 instrument makers. The sales are listed alphabetically by maker, sub grouped by instruments, and arranged chronologically by sales dates. Prices are given in U.S. dollars, British pounds and the Euro. They are written in an easy-to-read format and have helpful “Trade Secrets” appendices.

THE RED BOOK is printed in an 8.5” x 11” format and over 450 pages each. They are perfect bound for beauty and durability.

Sold in over 30 counties!


All editions are sold out! Thank you.
