This is a great

ANTIQUE

LEATHER BOUND

BOOK

 

It is the

 TREATISE ON

CLOCK AND WATCH MAKING

THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL

BY

THOMAS REID


Published by 

BLACKIE  SON

The First edition of this work was published in 1826, and re-published in Philadelphia, 1832, and several times in the 1840s and 1850s in London.

The fly leaf is absent, so I cannot definitely say which edition this is, but it is most likely to be the fifth edition published by Blackie & son in 1859.

The book measures approx 9 3/4 inches (250mm) by 6 1/4 inches (160mm), and is in pretty fair condition considering its great age.

The leather bound covers are sound, though a a little worn with 150 years of use, and the fly leaf is missing.

There are beautiful marbled end papers.

There is some discolouration of the interior, see photos, and a couple of the fold out illustrations are missing.

This is a fine antique horology book, 150 years old, and it would make a great addition to any collection.

weight approx 1.2 kilos.
