Time Telling Through the Ages

Book cover
By: (1870-1940)

Time Telling Through the Ages by Harry Chase Brearley is an incredibly informative and engaging book that delves into the history of timekeeping. With a clear and concise writing style, Brearley takes readers on a journey from the earliest methods of measuring time, such as sundials and water clocks, to the more modern inventions of mechanical clocks and watches.

The book is well-organized and easy to follow, with each chapter focusing on a different timekeeping device or era. I particularly enjoyed the sections on the development of the mechanical clock and the impact of the Industrial Revolution on timekeeping technology.

Brearley's passion for the subject shines through in his writing, and his attention to detail and thorough research make this book a valuable resource for anyone interested in the history of timekeeping. Overall, I highly recommend Time Telling Through the Ages to history buffs, horologists, and anyone looking to deepen their understanding of how we have measured time throughout history.

Book Description:
A history of timekeeping from the stone age through to American mass production, covering timepieces from the sundial and water clock through the key inventions driving advances in the accuracy of clocks and watches in both Europe and America. The book was conceived and sponsored by the Ingersoll Family as a celebration of their then 25 years of watchmaking. - Summary by Chris Cartwright
