5 Bruton, Eric The History Of Clocks & Watches
Kent, England Grange Books 2002 1840135050 / 9781840135053 Softcover New 
NEW NEW. Pages are clean and tight. This is a NEW book. Extensively illustrated with 120+ color and b/w photos and b/w drawings. Goes back to the ancient world, Babylonia, et al, through the middle ages to the modern age, giving a history of horology, the science of keeping time. While keeping precise time is a science, intricate and fascinating, the clock works themselves, and the housings, can also be amazing works of art. The development of the long case clock [grandfather clock] in the mid-17th century, lead to the marriage of the science of horology, with the infinite creativity and beauty that the cabinetmakers were able to achieve in the cases for the clock works. Even after 300+ years, a long case clock is still an elegant and desirable addition to the decor of most interiors [and to me, the epitome of science/art/craft working towards goal, oft times achieving a result whose total exceeds the sum of its parts]. Also includes an invaluable glossary. ; Photographs; 6 1/4 x 8 1/4; 224 pages; Very slight edge wear.
