La Pendule Francaise Des Origines a Nos Jours : Ire Partie, des origines au Louis XV
Paris: Tardy, 1961. Softbound. Fair; most of spine missing; covers detached, age-toned, and worn at edges; contents/signatures still loosely held together by original stitching. Prior owner (see note below) has made some excellent annotations here and there, but not pervasive. Sold as a reading copy only and not returnable because of condition. An ideal candidate for rebinding.. BW illustrated wraps in sewn and glued binding; 104 pp. with 100s of bw illustrations, including drawings. Entire text is in French. This volume represents part 1, De l'Horloge Gothique a la Pendule Louis XV. Winthrop Edey's copy; a well-known clock, watch, and photography collector who lived in New York City. NOTE: This title originally was published in 1949; although not stated, this must be the second edition, also published by Tardy's firm (he was deceased at the time, per a note by Edey), owned by his son-in-law.
