This richly illustrated two-volume book treats the history of the mechanical clock from the early 14th century up to the late 19th century, and its development in various European countries like Italy, Germany, the Low Countries, England and France. Each clock is individually presented with a full historical and technical description. Concluding with a list of clockmakers, a glossary, index and bibliography, this book is indispensable for all clock collectors and a marvellous book for those interested in antiques or antique clocks in particular.
