Printed card covers, 48 pages, illustrated in colour throughout. The Clockmakers’ Company, London, 1st edition, 1998.
Since publication the clock and watch display has been moved to its own space within London’s Science Museum and for all those who have not visited the collection and its new display, I heartily recommend that it is well worth the effort to do so. Just one niggle, at least for me, is that anyone who is not fully informed would leave the display thinking that the Clockmakers’ Company, a London Livery Company set up in 1631, had a lasting and important part to play within the mostly English horology on view, a story they are so obviously keen to portray. In reality much of the time it should be realised that English horology progressed despite the antics of the Company, rather than because of it.
