Know the Escapement. (Sixth edition, 1950), Barkus, Sarah & Homer A.
10 Barkus, Sarah & Homer A. Know the Escapement. (Sixth edition, 1950)
San Diego, California. Barkus Horological Laboratories. 1950 Hardcover Good 
12mo - 18.5 x 13 cm.; 201 pp. Red / brown cloth over boards with intricate blind stampings on the front (lettering and art work) and a textured relief effect on the back. First published in 1943, completely revised and extended in 1948, and then corrected for the sixth printing with the inclusion of lessons for training with Hand Model Escapement. This reminds me of bringing my great grandfather's pocket watch in to a venerable old watch maker for repairs. He had a slight tremor or shake (perhaps a palsy) in his hands and with the watch opened up being held over a large cloth draped over a wooden frame, a small piece fell out as he was examining it. The cloth 'tray' was piled high with small pieces from other watches and the small piece from the watch in hand just blended in. I looked at him with questions in my eyes and he looked back saying "I really don't like it when that happens". Well, such is life . . . The books shows mild wear to the corners and spine tips. The paste down end papers are browned on the edges and this browning is offset onto the free end papers. The binding is cocked (spine lean) and is a tad shaken. Otherwise very clean and still quite solid in spite of all that I say. A clear and removable archival cover has been fitted. 20373
