Insiders have known it for a long time. A new book on the Vehmeyer collection was in the making.
This time in English, much enlarged and improved.
A beautifully presented, two-volume book in a slip case. The body of the present Vehmeyer collection comprises some 350 clocks, which are fully described and depicted by, over a thousand, full colour plates. They are arranged chronologically per country of origin. The richly illustrated text covers the history of clock making in the various countries of importance: Germany, The Low Countries, England, France and, last but not least, Italy.
