Product description

Time Restored : The Harrison
timekeepers and R.T. Gould, the man who knew (almost) everything), by Jonathan
Betts.  Oxford University Press, 2006.  Hdbk.  464
pp.  Dust jacket still in excellent
condition.  Black cloth boards, gold
lettering on spine.  Many photographs and
other illustrations.  A scholarly,
detailed and entertaining account of a most extraordinary individual: a highly
talented polymath, whose life's greatest achievement as a horologist was the
successful restoration, over many years, of John Harrison's marine timekeepers
(Harrison featured in the best-seller Longitude).  But for all his innate gifts (he was, on the
evidence of several of the illustrations, a skilled draughtsman and
caricaturist), he was a complex, tragically 
flawed and frequently troubled genius. 
A fascinating biography.
