9780719803307: Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World: Complete 21st Century Edition

First compiled in 1929 as a pioneer work by the late G.H. Baillie, this directory of watchmakers and clock makers of the past soon established itself as the standard reference source and has been used ever since by watchmakers and clockmakers, collectors, dealers, museums, historians, and libraries the world over. The list of makers has more than doubled, having been thoroughly updated and revised by Brian Loomes in this twenty-first century edition, and now contains information on about 90,000 makers working between the late 16th and early 20th centuries. As well as the makers and retailers of clocks and watches, the list includes makers of scientific instruments, sundials, and barometers. Working dates include dates and places of birth, apprenticeship, freedom, marriage and death, as well as movement between different locations, and monograms. It is a unique and essential work of reference.

About the Author:

The late G.H. Baillie was a consulting engineer who was absorbed by the history and science of horology. He was a pioneer in compiling and publishing facts about past clockmakers and watchmakers. At one time he employed several people to uncover new details about them from various municipal archives, especially in Europe. Brian Loomes is today's best-known and most widely published author in the field of British antique clocks. He has written hundreds of articles and twenty-two books on the subject, including several which are used as standard works for collectors, dealers, museums and researchers throughout the world. A former professional genealogist his familiarity with source material has enabled him to undertake much original research into the lives of former clockmakers. As a dealer in clocks since the mid-1960s, he also has an understanding of the clocks themselves. He lives at Pateley Bridge in the Yorkshire Dales, where he and his wife run a specialist business dealing in antique clocks.

Review:

"The reference source for basic information about watch and clock makers."  —Kovels on Antiques and Collectibles
