About this title

Synopsis:

Presents the changing style of the watch over 500 years.

About the Author:

Genevieve Cummins is a Paediatric Surgeon, working in Sydney, Australia. She has a major interest in collecting a variety of antiques. She prefers to collect with a theme and for a specific purpose. This purpose has been research into the origin and history of particular topics that have not been fully covered in current literature. The result is the publication of three books by The Antique Collectors' Club. The first book, 'Chatelaines - Utility to Glorious Extravagance', written with Nerylla Taunton (1994), included the first detailed research on this topic and is now considered the definitive work. The second, 'Boxes - Inside and Out' (2006), covered every aspect of all types of boxes. These books have resulted in further newspaper reviews and magazine articles, as well as radio/television interviews. This third and current book, addresses the role of the watch as a fashion accessory, an aspect that has not previously been covered in detail. The collection acquired for this book and the book itself will be presented in June 2010 at a convention and exhibition of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors (NAWCC), Columbia, Pennsylvania.
