La guitare, tome 2 : Mirecourt, les provinces françaises

After the success of “La Guitare - Paris 1650-1950”, we are glad to announce the preparation of the second volume of this collection dedicated to

" La Guitare, tome 2: Mirecourt, the French provinces”.

Written by Daniel Sinier and Françoise de Ridder, the book presents and analyzes instruments made by the master makers in Mirecourt who, with their instruments, have contributed to the international fame of this town and its territory.
In the analysis, workshops, small or large, capacities and commercial practices of luthiers are put in evidence, a detailed description is made of a professional sector entirely dedicated to the construction and the commerce of musical instruments of the highest quality.
A panoramic view extended to the work of makers of musical instruments of the French regional capitals: Lyon, Bordeaux, Lille, cities that, even though distant from Paris, have produced craftsmanship of excellence.
Works represented by Altimira, Anciaume, Aubert, Aubry-Maire, Beau, Brugère, Cabasse-Visnaire, Coffe-Goguette, Collin, Deleplanque, Derazey, Didier, Ferry, Grobert, Lacaille, Lambert, Laurent, Leblanc, Mast, Mauchand, Mougenot, Noiriel, Otte, Petitjean, Pons, Pratten, Roudhloff, Salomon, Silvestre, Thibouville-Lamy, Vissenaire.
The volume illustrates more than 40 unpublished guitars accompanied by a text rich of colour photographs showing internal details of the instruments, their specific characteristics and various information gathered by the authors during their 40 years of activity.
