The Turret Clocks of T. Cooke & Sons of York – a historical perspective 1807 – 1897
by Steve and Darlah Thomas
One of the recent projects of long-time amateur horologists, and friends of mine, Steve and Darlah Thomas was to follow the history of Thomas Cooke and his family business including all the types of clock they made, plus their world renowned telescopes, astronomical, surveying and scientific instruments. They attempted to photograph every Cooke clock they could trace, so that this book has over 2,000 illustrations, mostly in colour.
The book includes details of all the turret clocks found, usually with three pages of illustrations of each one. There is a complete analysis of frame styles; clocks made for the GPO and for ‘the trade’; lost clocks; pages from a Cooke Order Book, and much more.
This is a hardback book of 592 pages approx. 305mm x 224mm, weighing 3.5kg and costs £75.00 plus £11.00 delivery to a UK mainland address.
