A detailed study of the life and work of Pierre-Louis Berthoud (1754 ¿ 1813) and Jean-François Henri Motel (1786 ¿ 1859), the famous French chronometer makers. This book is the definitive reference work on these makers as the author has used the order books, workshop journals and French Naval records which all fortunately still exist. For each maker a list of all items made is given with details of who made various parts and their cost, as well as the name of the original purchaser. A fine copy with very good original film wrapper and good card slipcase. This is a large heavy book (4.7 kg) so additional shipping will be necessary. Bookseller Inventory # K3639
