8017 - The Almanus Manuscript


The central part of the book is devoted to the thirty clocks; each of which is treated as a chapter, with an introduction containing an isometric projection of the clock, reconstructed, from Almanus' drawing; then the technical data, followed by the facsimiles, each of which has its Latin text and English translation on a facing page. A list of Latin terms, a glossary of technical terms, and a name index complete the work.
