3495 - European Clocks


Beginning with a short history of timekeeping, the author discusses European clocks from both an historical and geographical point of view. With each country, he concentrates on the period of its greatest influence, and there is a long section on that period of the eighteenth Century when English clockmaking led the field.... This books is profusely illustrated with some little-known examples of clocks from Scandinavia.
