Book Description: London, 1770. Half-Leather. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. iv, 164 pages, 18 folding plates, [London, 1770]. The book has 3 sections dealing with the fundamental principles and practice of dialling and the construction of useful dials, with many worked examples. This copy is missing pages 157 - 160 (worked examples IX & X on section3), otherwise it's a very good clean copy with good plates, trivial staining and trivial spotting to a few pages, in a good recent half leather binding with raised bands on spine. I believe this book was originally published as part of a larger work hence the publisher, place and date of publication are not given - however the only edition was published in 1770, in London by J. Nourse. Bookseller Inventory # K689

Book Description: 1914. Cloth. Book Condition: Good. No Jacket. First Edition. 68 pages, 14 figs., 3 plates, not dated but probably published in 1914. Loseby invented a form of auxiliary temperature compensation for chronometer balances using a small tube of mercury. He also designed an improved form of mercurial pendulum and a correction to render pendulums isochronous. Most of the book charts Loseby¿s success with his chronometer balance and his efforts to obtain official recognition. The remainder of the book described Loseby¿s Leicester turret clocks and his minor inventions. This is a good clean copy and the binding is tight. The cloth covered boards are a little marked with wear to head and foot of spine and a small hole in the cloth on the spine. This is one of the rarest books on this list and only the second copy we have offered for sale in 16 years of selling horological books. Bookseller Inventory # K1808
