The three volume catalogue set of the last of the four Sotheby's auctions of the contents of the Time Museum in Illinois October 13-15, 2004. Contains lots number 500 through 1153, and a wealth of knowledge about the objects in the collection.
While most of us will never own much of the material illustrated here, this (and the other Sotheby auction catalogs of the Time Museum Collection) are fantastic reference books, and something that will be appreciated by any collector, dealer, institution, or enthusiast who loves fine time pieces, mechanical wonders, and world class craftsmenship. Beautiful objects, excellent photography. It is worth noting that although this collection was sold partially at auction over at least 6 major auctions at Sotheby's (plus one at Christie's) that we're aware of, the remainder of the collection was preserved in Chicago at the world-renowned Museum of Science and Industry and Adler Planetarium.
