About COUNT IGNAZIO ALESSANDRO COZIO DI SALABUE (from Wikipedia):
******Count Ignazio Alessandro Cozio di Salabue, b.1755 d.1840, was an Italian Count known as the first great connoisseur and collector of violins. Among the most important instruments in Cozio's collection were ten violins of Antonio Stradivari, which he acquired from the maker's son Paolo in 1773-1774; however, many more instruments by Stradivari and numerous other renowned violin makers were in his collection or passed through his hands over the years. Cozio's meticulous notes on nearly every instrument that passed through his hands contributed enormously to the body of knowledge surrounding Italian violin making.******
