"These facts are contained in the biographical story 'Joseph Joachim, ein Lebensbild' written by Paul Moser, in the first chapter. Moser was a pupil and close friend of Joachim, with whom he collaborated in the preparation of the biography. In the first edition of the work (Berlin 1899-?-) he refers to the violin as an Andreas Amati, in the later edition (1908) as a Petrus Guarneri, the change having probably been due to the opinion given by the Berlin dealer an connoisseur Hammig who did most of Joachim's repair work during his later years."
