A General History of Horology edited by Turner, Nye, Betts

A General History of Horology is an invaluable resource for all those with an interest in the history of watches and clocks. Wide ranging and thoroughly researched, this book is the result of a collaboration between some of the most knowledgable and experienced experts in the field of horology. Contributors include: David Thompson (former curator of horology at the British Museum); Jonathan Betts (Curator Emeritus of the Royal Museums, Greenwich); British watchmaker Roger Smith. Edited by Anthony Turner, James Nye and Jonathan Betts.

Humanity’s development of time measurement is examined from Antiquity to the present day, and studied across the globe from the Far East to the Americas. The book is brilliantly indexed, allowing you to quickly and easily find references to particular historical periods, types of watches, clocks, terms, complications, decorative styles, famous makers and so on. You’ll also find an extremely useful glossary which clearly and succinctly explains a vast array of technical horological terms.
