A rare work by one of the main benefactors to the Clockmakers' Company collection.
Gold blocked boards, 310 pages, numerous figs. E & F N Spon, London, 1st and only edition, 1873.
Difficult to find and invaluable to all those with an interest in watches, and well worth reading for the latter chapters concerning : Fallacies of the Trade; Clerkenwell; Incapacity of Workmen, etc - as Charles Allix once wrote "first class entertainment"
A good copy but the the cloth split on the spine, the contents very clean.
