  • Mandolins – Lombardic mandolin. ATLAS of Plucked Instruments. "From the end of 19th century the Milanese mandolin changed into the mandolino Lombardo (also called mandore) : the body became more rounder, and it got a raised fingerboard, with metal frets. Often there is a scratch-plate between soundhole and bridge. The soundhole is often oval, and without a rosette. ... The Lombardic mandolin was the last of the mandolinos and it became obsolete around 1900."
  • Nicola Swinburne. A Brief History of the Mandolin. "Baroque mandolin traditions ... With minor adaptations the instrument survived to the present day under the names "mandolino Milanese" or "mandolino Lombardo.""
