The 4th Marquess of Hertford had a passion for clocks, collecting them in both Paris and London. This book explores all the eighteenth-century clocks and barometers purchased by the Marquess and now form part of the Wallace Collection. For each clock a description of the case and movement is provided along with details of the work of the clockmakers, cabinetmakers, bronze founders and gilders. There are full-page colour illustrations of each clock, accompanied by details in black and white of the movements.
