Comments:

Body widths from Kaminski 1992 and Szulc 1949 match above from Jaskulski 1996 (taken in the air; those over arching are 45.1/34.0/58.0); Jaskulski 1996 gives body lengths as 96.5 in the air, 96.6 over arching. Szulc: Bass gamba, Austria, 17-18C; mediocre work, badly damaged; “normal Fs”; used as a double bass. Alicia Knaust, “Lutherie in the Polish lands,” presumably means this instrument when she writes that “The oldest instrument of the Polish school of lutherie is a double bass viola da gamba dated to ca. 1650 (now held by Musical Instrument Museum in Poznan.” (http://www.violin.instruments.edu.pl/en/history/lutherie-in-the-polish-lands, accessed 4/21/18)
