  • Letter: Alfred E. Hill, London "I have nothing but praise for the 1717 Stradivari! It is, without doubt, a superb example of the Master's broad pattern, which you will note in our Life of Stradivari, he initiated in 1708-9 and adhered to to the end! . . . In conclusion, I repeat, I look upon this 'Stradivari' as one of the supremely fine existing examples of the maker's work, the beauty of which cannot be surpassed, its purity and condition to be equaled by few!"
