Notes:For the diary of Arthur F. Hill, dated March 3, 1892: "George Hart called and mentioned that the Strad cello dated 1719 which we have now obtained from the camposelice collection was the one they bought off Capt. Bayley of Exeter. He also stated that the belly was originally of a yellow color, and they thought that this part was made by one of the Gagliano's [sic]. Hart also thought his uncle [William] Valentine had varnished it to match the rest."
