Chronometers and their Creators: Three Centuries of Cutting Edge Technology.

More details

Printed card covers, 146 pages, illustrated throughout. Text in German and English. Catalogue of the Exhibition held at Deutsches Schiffahrts Museum, Bremerhaven, 6th May to 25th November, 2012.

A catalogue highly recommended for the images and details of their chronometer and precision clocks collection, but the English translation is wayward at times and, if a reflection of the original German text, is somewhat surprising in its awarding of credit. For example John Arnold's contribution is simply stated as being "involved in marketing English and French innovations in chronometer design." Further, many otherwise all-English chronometers bearing German retailers names are merely said to have English ebauches, a comment that does little credit to the author in 2012.

As new.
