C.F. Martin & His Guitars, 1796-1873

by Philip F. Gura
The Martin is considered the finest acoustic guitar in the world, a distinction it has held for more the 160 years. Philip Gura Chronicles the career of Christian Frederick Martin from his humble start as an importer and repairman of musical instruments in New York City in the 1830s through his move to Nazareth, Pennsylvania, and the founding of C.F. Martin & Company. Gura is the first historian to throughly study the Martin company records dating back to the 1830s. Using this rich archive, he establishes how a German immigrant from Saxony's guild tradition became the finest American guitar maker of his time. The many sketches and hundreds of photographs illustrate how Martin adapted his artisanal craft to modern industrial methods. Includes an 80-page color section!
