Clocks: Centuries of Style
Rebecca Kingsley (ed.). This volume is an enthralling study of timepieces throughout the ages from around the world. An illuminating text is accompanied by over 100 color photographs of some of the world’s most beautiful & intricate clocks. Horology is a fascinating hobby: all clocks can be admired simply as things of beauty or studied mechanically. Finely crafted with breathtaking precision, the clocks of the 17th & 18th centuries are among the most beautiful ever made. The works of Thomas Tompion & John Harrison, two of the foremost clockmakers of the era, are outstanding both as aesthetic objects & as scientific horological masterpieces. Recently, electrification & quartz technology have miniaturized clocks & ensured that accuracy is unsurpassed.
