More details

Card covers, 91 pages, 290 items described, approx 70 black & white photos, Bibliography and Index of Makers. First and only edition, University of Oxford, 1973. Together with original Thames Valley Police special circular, 13th October 1977. 

A strange catalogue using strange descriptions (movement of brass and steel), while sometimes missing the more important information such as movement number! That said, an indispensable catalogue giving details of an important collection which was sadly robbed of 87 watches on the night of October 7th, 1977, not all of which have been recovered. One man was jailed in 1978. 

Good clean condition.
