Abstract:

Correspondence includes letters addressed directly to Mrs. Crosby Brown, such as those from Godfrey Kopp, a dealer in Rome, offering for sale a collection of utensils used in the manufacture of Stradivarius violins; and Alice D. Le Plongeon, an authority on Mayan musical instruments, providing descriptions both of the instruments and of indigenous performance practices. The following are examples of other significant correspondence: F. Dal Fabbro, curator of the Civic Museum of Verona, to Luigi Palma di Cesnola, Director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, providing a list of all musical instruments owned by the municipality of Verona which are offered for sale; Robert Ormsby Sweeny, President of the Minnesota State Fish Commission, to Daniel Rogers Noyes, a businessman and civic leader in St. Paul, Minn., providing an illustrated dissertation on various native American musical instruments. In addition to correspondence, there is a handwritten inventory of musical instruments in the possession of Marquis Alessandro dalle Valle di Pomaro, as well as a list of professional articles formerly belonging to Stradivarius and sold by his son (these may be the items referred to in Kopp's correspondence); a list of the musical instruments owned by the Smithsonian Institution; various handwritten lists of articles and offprints of articles by specialists about music, musical instruments and musical instrument collections.
