Das Bechstein Bilderbuch (The Bechstein Picture Book)

£50.00

Product description

This book tells the story of the Bechstein piano company, with many endorsements from famous composers and musicians.

From the introduction in the book:
The divine art of music and its instruments have always been a uniting link between the various nations. The Stradivarius violins, the Guarneri violoncellos and the Bechstein pianos are known in the remotest part of the world, which have been reached by occidental civilisation, and Frederic Lamond could rightly call Bechstein the "peaceful conqueror" of the world. The "Bechstein-Picture-Book" is meant to continue this peaceful conquest. We are opening our archives in order to publish documents, which, we trust, will make propaganda for Carl Bechsteins international and universal creation, The Bechstein Pianos.

The text in this book is in German, English and French.

The book has coloured illustrated covers and is profusely illustrated with some colour photos.

There is shelf wear, rubbing and bumping to the covers of the book (see photos). Parts of the spine are missing. Inside the book the pages are clean and the binding for the most part is firm though it is a little loose at the bottom of the spine edge.
