The History of Clocks and Watches
by Eric BrutonFrom the dust jacket: Eric Bruton traces the path of this development from the simple shepherd's dial made of clay, through the heavy iron Gothic turret clocks, and the rush of horological activity which followed the invention of the pendulum by Christiaan Huygens in the mid-seventeenth century, to the perfection of the escapement - developments which form the basic circuitry of our modern clocks and watches. Accompanying this history are the inspiring stories of the men who revolutionized principles of timekeeping in their day, such as Sully, Le Roy, Breguet, Tompion and Harrison. There are over 370 illustrations, with 117 in color. Hard cover. 288 pages.
