About this title:

Synopsis: Excerpt from Breguet, 1747-1823

Reguet is known only by his productions. He never published a single sentence, but it is stated that he was engaged on a great work upon Horology, when a Call to another World stopped the enterprise. T o obtain a mere glimpse of his life, many books must be consulted, and such glimpses only consist of a few pages or a few words. To obtain an account of his inventions, devices and work, the task is still more difficult. The late Mr. Britten, in his interesting books on Old Clocks and Watches, and in other ones, gives but little information. No one, I believe, has attempted to write a short book or pamphlet on Breguet's work, and this want I am trying here to- supply, though my pen cannot do full justice to so great an inventor and artist.
