I've been searching the library for some good books on the history of the violin, What i want more is how the violins shape came to be the way it is, and who made the very first one. So far I've only been able to find books on the players. There is a lot of information on the internet. But one has to take all that with a few grains of salt ^_^.

Wikipedia is probably as reliable as any book and maybe more current (?)

 

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

As a result of your question Readalot, I did a search and came up with this interesting link.

Also a good Wikipedia link.

I got to learn some cool stuff in the process 🙂 Thanks for the post.
