About this Item: Crescent Books, New York, New York, U.S.A., 1988. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Color & b/w Photos & Illustrations (illustrator). First Edition.. The measurement of time was one of man's earliest obsessions, and the desire for ever greater precision in time-keeping has inspired generations in the fields of mathematics and science. Equally, each advance has produced accompanying works of great craftsmanship that have turned objects of sober function into things of outstanding beauty. Eric Bruton traces the path of this development from the simple shepherd's dial made of clay, through the rush of horological activity that followed the invention of the pendulum in the mid-seventeenth century, to the perfection escapement developments that form the basic principles of the complex electronic circuitry of our clocks and watches today. Combining specially commissioned line drawings, magnificent colour illustrations and a lucid, authoritative text, this book offers the reader a wonderful catalogue of man's achievement in the fields of science and art. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. About the Author Eric Bruton is a Fellow of the British Horological Insititute and Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers but is best-known for his regular appearances on BBC TV's Antiques Roadshow.

Great Clocks of the World; Glossary; Bibliography; Index; Acknowledgments. ***'The measurement of time was one of man's earliest obsessions, and the desire to created ever greater precision in timekeeping has inspired generations in the fields of mathematics and science. Equally, each advance has produced accompanying works of great craftsmanship which have cloaked objects of sober function with a mantle of outstanding beauty. ***Eric Bruton traces the path of this development from the simple shepherd's dial made of clay, through the heavy iron gothic turret clocks, and the rush of horological activity which followed the invention of the pendulum by Christian Huygens in the mid-seventeenth century, to the perfection of the escapement - developments which form the basic principles of the complex electronic circuitry of our modern clocks and watches. Accompanying this history are the inspiring stories of the men who revolutionised principles of timekeeping in their day, such as Sully, Le Roy, Breuget, Tompion and Harrison. During the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the need for accurate navigation and mapping as well as astronomers and mathematicians, mechanics, sailors, who were helped by offers of huge sums of prize money from governments eager to gain control of the seas. The problem seemed simple enough - to make a clock or watch go accurately on tossing merchantman of man-of-war - but it took a long time and enormous effort until a solution, the marine chronometer, was found. ***As the illustrations in this book show, clocks and watches are not only functional, but their cases are beautiful examples of the art of the jeweller, engraver, enameller and woodcarver. This elegant combination of art and science can be seen in a wide selection of design masterpieces, ranging from the exuberant gilding of the French rococo, to the simple domesticity of American shelf clocks and the superb marquetry of the longcase clock. There is a special chapter in the book on the great clocks and watches of the world which includes the massive and immutable Stonehenge as well as Jens Olsen's twentieth-century masterpiece of precision. ***Combining specially commissioned line drawings, magnificent colour illustrations, and a text that is both lucid and authoritative, this book offers the reader a wonderful catalogue of man's achievement in the fields of science and art.' ***First impression of the true first edition in original dustwrapper (without outer slipcase), in very nice bright condition, of interest to horologists and collectors. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Seller Inventory # 3424
