KEEPING TIME by Walter Buehr


Email this review


The means of keeping time, be it in seconds, days, or years, is an intricate one. The discovery of measured time is an event to children, and this text aims to capture their initial interest and carry them into a methodical understanding of the concept and methods of keeping time. Sections on the various calendars, time pieces (mechanical and non mechanical), keeping time at sea, traditions in clockmaking, and in the history of the modern watch industry provide a general historical and semi-technical background for an elementary study of the subject.
