The Artificial Clock-maker. A Treatise of Watch, and Clock-work...,
The Fourth Edition, corrected, i.e. fifth edition but a variant, 3 folding engraved plates including one of musical notation and chimes, marginal browning at beginning and end, engraved frontispiece frayed at inner margin and mounted on stub, worming to lower margin affecting a few catchwords, final plate (but not image) and rear pastedown, hinges reinforced, contemporary calf, later paper label titled in ink, rather worn, joints split, spine ends and corners worn, [cf.Baillie p.123, Clockmakers' 261 & Tardy p.74], 8vo, J.Knapton, 1759.
⁂ Apparently an unknown variant. There are only 4pp. of tables incorporated into the text rather than 8pp., they are not updated to conform with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar and there is no footnote concerning updating.
