John Wyke of Liverpool, Introduction and Technical Commentary by Alan Smith, A Catalogue of Tools for Watch and Clock Makers

John Wyke of Liverpool, Introduction and Technical Commentary by Alan Smith A Catalogue of Tools for Watch and Clock Makers , University Press of Virginia, Charlottesville, USA, first printing, 1978, (ISBN: 0813907519).

An amplified re-issue of the earliest known English catalogue of horologists' tools, first published around 1770, as engraved pages without separate text, now with words by Alan Smith, himself a respected engraver. Hardback, oblong format, quarto-size (23 cm high by 30cm wide), 166 pages ([xii, 154), including Wyke's 62 engraved plates in facsimile; Smith's text considerably enhanced by numerous further illustrations from photographs, showing examples of the tools themselves, also watch and clock parts made using them: publisher's olive-green cloth, gilt-blocked titling to spine; grey dustwrapper. ••••CONDITION•• Fine with Alan Smith's presentation inscription and not otherwise marked or written in; the dustwrapper (now in a protective sleeve), less good than the book, a little tattered - no great loss but repaired in several places, properly on the inside, with removable archival paper tape and one old repair, also on the inside but with Scotch-type tape. (ISBN: 0813907519) (Book ref. 7141382 )  £ 55.00
