Wilsele, Belgium, 1st. edition, 2004, 1032 pages and about 950 colour illustrations., bibliography, index; .,small-folio sized, immaculate new set in box and still in shrink wraps.( 25 x 33.1 cm ) A completely rewritten and vastly expanded version of an earlier publication in Dutch (Vehmeyer, Antieke Uurwerken - Een familienverzameling, 1994, 624 pages ) this work is therefore vastly more accessible to most collectors. It is basically a detailed history of the mechanical clock in Europe, illustrated primarily with examples from the extraordinary collection of the author's family. The 1994 edition showed 233 clocks in detail; the 2004 edition has grown to 330 clocks so shown. Therefore, the book is also a massive collection catalogue. Each clock in the family collection is catalogued on two (or more) large (13x10 inches) pages, with about half a page of text describing maker, dial, movement and case, half a page of colour photos of details, and a large, full page colour picture of the clock facing the initial page. The clocks are arranged by country (52 from Germany, 109 from the Netherlands, 94 from England, 83 from France. ). Within each country, they are in chronological order. Part I comprises a comprehensive introduction to the origins of clockmaking, while Part II presents a comparative horological history of the leading European clockmaking countries: Germany, England, France, Italy and last but not least, the Netherlands. The book has a lot more to offer than just historical and technical facts about clocks. On the basis of the Vehemeyer family collection of more than 350 clocks, which are illustrated at the end of each relevant chapter, it gives insight into the relative importance of each country and the mutual influence these countries exerted on each other. Owing to its large number of beautifully produced photographs of both the exterior and very often also the interior of the various artefacts, as well as the explanatory accompanying texts, which follow a set pattern, this book will prove to be of interest to both laymen and specialist alike. 9053494316 / ISBN-13: 978-9053494318.
