4407 - Clocks Watches and Chronometers (1819-20)

REES Abraham

A selection of articles and plates on the subject of horology, taken from Rees's Cyclopaedia or Universal Dictionary of Arts, Sciences and Literature. The first encyclopedia, published in 1820 to put primary emphasis on technological subjects. Collectors will find it of great value and interest, and maritime historians too will be absorbed by the substantial article on chronometers so important in the history of navigation. Rare reprint as new.
