Hungarian violinist Carl Flesch (1873-1944) was a student of Jakob Grun in Vienna and Martin Pierre Marsick in Paris, going on to be a well-regarded chamber music performer and soloist. He was also one of the most highly sought-after violin teachers of his day, known for his sensitive, analytical approach that emphasized artistry over virtuosity. His students have included Ivry Gitlis, Ida Haendel, Eric Rosenblith, Max Rostal, and Roman Totenberg. Among Flesch's many method publications still used today are ''Basic Studies for Violin'' (1911), ''The Art of Violin Playing'' (1923-28), and ''The Problem of Resonance in Violin Playing'' (1931).

His most famous book by far is ''The Scale System'' for violin (1926), regarded today as one the foremost and most indispensable scale book for advancing violin students, and has been transcribed for viola, cello, and bass as well. It contains three-octave scale exercises in all major and minor keys, with arpeggios, double-stops, octaves, and single and double-stopped harmonics. It is an also an ideal supplement to Book 1 of ''The Art of Violin Playing''. The present edition was edited and revised by Max Rostal, who provides additional fingering options, explanations, and commentary.
