Product description

Seventh edition of Sir Edmund Beckett's famous rudimentary treatise on design of time pieces and bells, including their hanging. Richly illustrated. The frontispiece is a superb fold out of Big Ben. The book has the original maroon quartered leather binding, somewhat worn with use. The book is in very good condition with the exception of the binding at the folding frontispiece drawing. While it is still present, the drawing has been detached resulting in damage to the binding between the front free end-paper and the page block.
