Rare 1st edition of this justly famous book, full of information not easily found anywhere else.
Boards, dust jacket, 416 pages, 777 line illustrations by me, plus 8 pages of colour photographs. 1st edition, Sotheby publications, 1st edition, 1981.
I worked with George for over three years in the production of this book producing over 1000 illustrations and consider it as my apprenticeship in practical watchmaking. This is the first and best, I think, edition, having George's own specially drawn endpapers which do not appear in later editions, though he was annoyed to see his signature badly cropped.
Some light shelf wear to jacket and signed by myself on the title page, otherwise almost as new.
