Book Description Bill Taylor & BHI, Van Nuys/Upton, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket (as issued). First Edition. New copy. 341 pages, illustrated, 2006. A collection of all the horological articles published by Philip Woodward (a respected and distinguished British horologist) over more than 30 years. This is an essential book for clock designers, students of horological theory and all those who want to build very accurate pendulum clocks. The papers are grouped under seven headings: Experimental Clocks; Escapement Theory; Error Analysis; Timekeeping Stability; Pendulums and their Suspensions; A Study of the Spiral Hairspring; and W5 for Emulation. (W5 is a very accurate clock, designed and built by Woodward, with a free pendulum. This book contains good photographs of an emulation of W5, and a more detailed explanation than that given in Woodward's book My Own Right Time.) This book is a major contribution to horological knowledge. This is a heavy book (1.6 kg) so additional shipping will be necessary. Bookseller Inventory # N2285
