Letter: W. E. Hill & Sons, London, January 11, 1938. "The Stradivari Violoncello . . . was, originally, and instrument of large dimensions and dates from about 1690-98. It has been very skillfully reduced in size to bring it into conformity with the instruments made by the master after 1799. This alteration was, we believe, carried out by Claude-Victor Rambaux (b. 1806, d. 1871), a Paris Luthier of repute."
