About this Item

Book is very clean and nice with no names or writing. Small crease to upper front corner with no crumpling -- sharp corner remains. Jacket may possibly have sunned at spine to light blue but it is so uniform that it's difficult to tell, as lettering remains unaffected. Very attractive and matches the blue on the clock at face. Jacket protected by brand new mylar.Illustrated with both black and white photographs and color plates. Also includes handsome fold-out at back. Thomas Tompion, known as the "father of clockmakers", was one of the finest horologists in history. He created works of art as well as accurate timepieces. Much information and spectacular images. Book was originally published in 1951.It's oversized at 9"x11=3/4" and is fascinating for both its extensive text AND its incredible black and white photographs of the internal workings of the clock.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
