KIRKUS REVIEW

While away the hours with this leading German photographer's magnificent book of timepieces. Made of ebony, bronze, brass, gilt copper, silver and gold and intricately carved and decorated with lapus lazuli, marble and enameling, many of these clocks were made for the showrooms of kings. The most illustrious clockmakers of Prague, Nuremberg, Amsterdam and London are represented in this lavish collection.
