The first reason why was this book piblished was simply the fact that many existing publications about violin making in Italy since 1860 contained inaccurate information. This is esentially due to the fact that the dates in Dictionnaire Universel des Luthiers by Rene vannes have been recopied without verifying their accuracy. Almost all the publications folowed this information and so the same errors have been passed on up until today.
