Author of The Art & History of Violin Cases, Dr. Glenn P. Wood has used his research collection of historically and developmentally interesting violin cases in his numerous publications on the matter. Among the 70 lots on offer are elegant examples of English, French, and Italian craft, German design, and American ingenuity. Of particular note are the dozen-odd cases by the firm of W.E.
