    Klaus Martius, formerly a conservator with the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremburg, is compiling a database attempting to document all 16th, 17th and 18th century lutes still in existence. We are providing a home for this project on the Worldwide Web, and we encourage you to contribute any additional information to Klaus at one of the addresses given on his more detailed explanatory page.
