Comments:

Square shoulders: original or altered? Fleming 2001 says label very hard to read, gives date as 1614; Baines called it 1605 (to Lyman), then 1611. 7-piece table with double purfling; none on striped back (3 kinds of wood: plum, maple, yew). Many repairs and severe alterations, including table crack sewn together with brass wire. F. Baines, in Early Music 6 (1978), p. 45, states his Jaye bass was acquired from Dolmetsch collection. Tourin: round shoulders, yew ribs, striped yew and maple back; label copy by Dolmetch with date 1611 (?); dimensions 71.1, -/-/-, 12.7, 68.6 (originally supplied by Baines to Tourin in 1976, in inches equivalent to 71.1, 33.0/-/40.6, 12.7, 71.1).
