Item Description: Paris, 1928. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. 2 volumes, 348 pages + 352 pages with 540 figures and 7 plates in total, original card covers bound in, 1928. Limited edition, copy number 606 of 1000 copies. The classic work on all types of automata and their makers which has never been bettered. This book is a comprehensive study ranging from simple ancient Egyptian articulated heads to the complex androids of Jaquet-Droz. There are six chapters about clocks with automata and there is even a chapter on the history of mechanical artificial limbs! The later work by Chapuis & Droz (in 1949/1958) was written as an update to, and not a replacement of, this book. A nicely bound copy in quarter grey calf with marbled boards, with ribbed and gilt tooled spine (now a little rubbed). A very good copy of a rare and valued book. [French language] This is a heavy 2 volume set (5.1 kg) so additional postage will be required. Bookseller Inventory # K2340

Item Description: Readex/Pergammon Press, 1969. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket (as issued). 5 volumes, illustrated, 1969. A facsimile reprint, photographically reduced to about half original size, of the first Paris edition of this famous encyclopaedia produced between 1751 and 1772. Four reduced facsimile pages of the original appear on one folio-sized page (39.5 x 25 cm) of this printing. The printing quality is excellent and all text and diagrams are very legible. The encyclopaedia contains a wealth of information; over 75,000 entries and over 2,500 plates. A fine copy with a few minor marks to the covers. [French language] This book weighs over 30 kg when packed so additional shipping will be required. The original work consisted of: 17 text volumes produced between 1751and 1765 (in compact edition volumes 1, 2 & 3) 11 plate volumes produced between 1762 and 1772 (in compact edition volume 4) And the Supplement: 4 text volumes produced between 1776 and 1777 (in compact edition volume 5) 1 plate volume produced in 1777 (in compact edition at the end of volume 4) And the Tables: 2 volumes produced in 1780 (in compact edition volume 5) The Tables are an invaluable reference to the articles and plates contained in all 28 volumes of the Encyclopaedia and the 5 volumes of the Supplement, making 35 volumes in all (including the 2 volumes of Tables). The writers of the encyclopaedia saw it as a vehicle to access human knowledge and to guide opinion. It was a summary of thought and belief of the Enlightenment period and also a vast compendium of the technologies of the period, describing the traditional craft tools and processes. The encyclopaedia had a major impact on French society at the time and played an important role in the intellectual ferment leading to the French Revolution. The work is still much studied today, especially for its wealth of information on the tools and technologies of the period. Many clock enthusiasts will be aware of the 64 plates on horology; there are also plates on astronomy, astronomical instruments, dialling, mechanics, hydraulics, optics, turning, surveying, hydraulics, medical instruments and many other subjects.

No Jacket. 382 pages, over 250 engraved illustrations, frontispiece + 1 plate, 1st (and only) English language edition, 1893. The latest and best edition of this work. The instructions for the use of the microscope and its accessories are very clear, and the survey of microscopes then in production is of great interest historically. [The title page incorrectly calls for 3 plates, all copies I have seen have a frontispiece and a plate with 9 microphotographs facing page 64. Page 59 is labelled plate VII so perhaps this is what was intended as the third plate.] A good copy, very light foxing to a few pages, inner hinges to both boards a little loose. A heavy book so additional postage will be necessary. Bookseller Inventory # K3836

Item Description: Brant Wright Associates Ltd, Ashford, 1978. Hardback. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Poor. First Edition. xxiv, 251 pages, 24 colour plates, 68 b&w illus., 1st edition, signed by author, 1978. The book has a presentation inscription on the front flyleaf and is signed by David Harries (on page xi) who wrote the foreword. This is an excellent book, much better in my opinion than the later book by the same author with a similar title. The last 100 pages are an essential research tool being a listing of all known Mercer chronometers sold to retailers, ships chandlers etc., including date of sale, price and retailer's name and serial number as engraved on the chronometer dial. A good copy (showing significant signs of use) of a scarce book, the dust jacket now worn and torn with some loss. Signed by Author(s). Bookseller Inventory # K472
