Nouveau Traite General d'Horlogerie - Troisieme edition augmentee d'un appendice contenant de nouvelles etudes sur les echappements anciens et modernes, le pendule ordinaire, le pendule conique et le balancier annulaire avec la theorie du spiral reglant de M. Phillips, les applications de l’electricite a l’horlogerie et la description d’une sà rie d’appareils spà ciaux se rattachant a l’art de l’horloger / par M. A. Debize. Three volumes
Paris, Dunod 1875 - Enlarged third edition with the inclusion of a supplement as an extra volume (pt. 3) as well as the inclusion of twenty extra plates (seventy plates in total). Supplement contains technical developments since the earlier two editions, and include: Moinet Debize on exhausts, the conical pendulum, the annular balance, the application of electricity to horology, and a reissue of Phillips on the theory of Spiral setting. Two heavy quarto sized volumes in publisher's original printed paper or soft-cover bindings and rough-cut edges. Vol I pp: viii, 448; frontispiece & 20 pull-out plates,Vol II pp: [iv],551; frontis; 204; 31 pull-out plates (pt. I), 19 pull-out plates (pt. II) Binding copies only with text-block of second volume in two pieces (text-block pieces themselves are sturdy), and remaining fragile covers (rear cover of vol I missing) are tatty and worn, Main text and all seventy plates however, are all present, and leaves appear mostly unopened over the two volumes, beginning from ch.4 of vol I onwards. Text also clean, although there is light foxing to many leaves from vol I, and to most leaves in first part of vol II. There are other faults: rear cover of second volume (appendix) has come away from text-block, and has a large corner tear with loss (affecting printed border); last four leaves in index of vol II are loose, and include the last two entries or lines in this index being torn away - although as mentioned above, main text is complete; and six plates from the appendix are loose and tatty with ragged edges and tears (illustrations not affected), and have age-dulled. However, the rest of the plates (all 64 of them) are in neat, crisp condition. Very scarce as a third edition, And very worthy as a binding copy. PLEASE NOTE: This is a heavy item and extra towards delivery cost may be requested. An enquiry is recommended - especially for overseas delivery.
