Some Account of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers of the City of London

£225.00

Product description

This fascinating volume is subtitled 'Compiled principally from their own records' by the two authors, who are listed respectively as Warden and Former Clerk to the Company, and Librarian to the Corporation of the City of London. The history is traced from the date of the Company's original Charter of Incorporation in 1631, up to 1878/9, and provides a wealth of fascinating information for any budding (or experienced) horologist - or indeed, anyone interested in the history of the Worshipful Companies of the City of London.

Our book is in very nice condition, having been rebound in a brown cloth cover with gilt title etc on front and spine, and a decorative border to top & bottom of these - impressed on the front, and gilt on the spine. Very little external wear - slight bubbling of the cloth down the spine angles, minor shelf wear to top & tail of spine, slight damage to top front corner, but not to others, and a little darkening of the spine. Gilt page tops, and roughcut fore-edges (several pages uncut). Inside, the binding is generally firm with no loose pages; all pages clean. Some occasional spots on leading edge may be foxing, but none seen inside the book.
