New edition of a book considered by many to be the finest horological text of the 20th century. Includes over 65 new images and a Foreword by Jonathan Betts - Gould's biographer and the Senior Curator of Horology at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. This long-awaited new edition of Gould's seminal text on the development of the marine chronometer not only faithfully reproduces the original, but also includes the author's own extensive notes, made in preparation for a second edition. These amendments, additions and sketches are carefully placed to clearly distinguish them from the original text. The volume also includes 65 images, comprising portraits, up-to-date photographs and black and white images from Gould's collection.
