Description

This two-volume publication illustrates the evolutionary history
of the pendulum clock from the early Age of Metternich and
provides detailed explanations on their engineering. In addition,
it contains a catalogue with over 300 wall and longcase clocks,
most of which have never been published, and a unique index
with over 12,000 entries on clockmakers from all over the Austrian
Empire, including a vast amount of previously unknown
masters and workshops. It also includes biographical information
on the makers, locations of the workshops, masterpieces and
exhibits from trade exhibitions, inventions, characteristic
features
of the pieces, sales outlets, and the prices of the time.
An indispensable compendium on classic longcase and wall clocks
of the Austrian Empire and a major reference work for all those
with an interest in clocks!
