Watchmakers & Clockmakers Of The World Volume 1 By G.h. Baillie:
Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World
by G.H. BaillieFrom the dust jacket: Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World (Volume 1) was first published in 1929 as a companion volume to the same author's Watches. It quickly established itself as a valuable work of reference. This enlarged Edition, is issued by the specialist publishers in the horological, gemmological and related fields - N.A.G. Press Ltd., London. Mr. Baillie's researches into the origins of horological mechanisms and the identities of the men who made them, together with his work of classifying and cataloguing the collection of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, established his renown as an authority on horological origins and historical data. The list of names, dates and localities in this book is obviously the most comprehensive existing; it was compiled, checked and rechecked with the utmost care. The book is a mine of information for both amateurs and traders, containing the names of makers of watches and clocks in centres of the industry in all parts of the world. The lists of abbreviations, alternative spellings, initials and monograms and place names, together with the maps, all assist in the identification of makers and the establishment of age and nationality of antique watches and clocks.
