"Two Famous Stradivarius Violins King Maximilian and Prince Khevenhuller"

Hello, I found one copy listed in an auction with an estimates sale value of $250-$400. http://www.tarisio.com/pages/auction/auction_item.php?csid=2197389312&cpid=2498019328

I searched the index for Library of Congress and they do not have a copy of this book in their inventory. Many of these rare editions were numbered limited editions and if so the value could increase dramatically. Also if you have a history of who owned the book and trace it back this will help authenticate your book and also increase the value. I can not find another source to value your book. Thank You Tom

Hello, I can add some more information to your search but the original value I gave is the only source I can locate. The book looks to have been printed in 1929 and here is a German Copy http://openlibrary.org/b/OL6729861M/Geschichte_und_Beschreibung_von_zwei_Meisterwerken_des_Antonius_Stradivarius_bekannt_als_die_Ko¨nig_Maximilian_aus_dem_Jahre_1709_und_die_Prinz_Khevenhu¨ller_aus_dem_Jahre_1733

Thank You Tom

Thank You, XXXXX XXXXX one more idea. There is a National Museum of Music which part of the University of South Dakota http://orgs.usd.edu/nmm/ , They may not only have a way to value your book but a museum may also be a buyer of such a rare manuscript. I will keep looking and should be able to contact you for about a week on this same question. Thanks again Tom
