The purpose of this book is to provide a historical overview of the several tools that man used for measuring time, from the ancient times when time was measured through season changing or empirical methods, up to the invention of mechanical clocks and watches.
Readers will be attracted by the rich iconography of this volume that shows a remarkable set of antique clocks and watches, most of which are unrevealed and have been discovered in private collections.
