PREFACE

Especially notable among the achievements of The Keystone in the field of horology were the three serials
devoted to the lever, cylinder and chronometer escapements. So highly valued were these serials when
published that on the completion of each we were importuned to republish it in book form, but we deemed it
advisable to postpone such publication until the completion of all three, in order that the volume should be a
complete treatise on the several escapements in use in horology. The recent completion of the third serial gave
us the opportunity to republish in book form, and the present volume is the result. We present it to the trade
and students of horology happy in the knowledge that its contents have already received their approval. An
interesting addition to the book is the illustrated story of the escapements, from the first crude conceptions to
their present perfection.
