Leopold Mozart's "Violinschule" of 1756. Chapter II, Figure 2

he writes of this picture: "...[this] is a comfortable method. The violin is placed against the neck so that it lies somewhat in front of the shoulder and the side on which the e-string lies comes under the chin, whereby the violin remains unmoved in its place even during the strongest movements of the ascending and descending hand."
