NAUTICAL ANTIQUES & COLLECTABLES., Baddeley, Jon.
1 Baddeley, Jon. NAUTICAL ANTIQUES & COLLECTABLES.
Konecky & Konecky, (New York, 1993). 
160 pp, 4to (11 1/4" H) hard cover in dust jacket. Profusely illustrated in color and b&w. "This well-illustrated collector's guide covers a wide range of nautical decorative arts and naviational instruments. The book spans the period from the sixteenth century to the present day with an emphasis on the golden age of production between 1800 and 1940. These more modern pieces are readily found in specialist shops and auctions and are therefore more affordable than earlier and rarer pieces. The book is divided into eight chapters, covering ship models, navigational instruments, ship fixtures and fittings, marine arts and crafts, ocean liner artefacts and ship portrait painting. A concluding chapter lists public and private collections where marine art can be seen and provides information on its purchase internationally. There is also practical advice on the restoration of these artefacts." Dust jacket very light edge wrinkling and very light rubbing. Fine/Very Good+

180 pp, folio (13 1/4" H). Profusely illustrated with colour photographs. Trilingual text (English / German / French). "Since its foundation in 1839, the Geneva factory (of Patek Philippe) has determined the appearance of each type of watch popular at the time, from pocket watches to table clocks and wrist watches. Countless patents have been developed there in order to substantially improve the reliability and precision of their timepieces. At international auctions, their individual models have always been amongst the most highly prized and sought after by collectors. This volume presents an important private collection with timepieces dating from 1923 to 1981. The exclusive focus of attention is on the most interesting chapter in the history of Patek Philippe's development: the so-called complicated wrist watches whose development was made possible by the firm's winding mechanism, patented in 1861. The various models are classified according to type of watch and date of production, and are accompanied by the essential technical data together with lavish use of illustrations." Contents: Patek Philippe: Collecting Quality; Patek Philippe: Technical and Stylistic Excellence on Your Wrist; Chronographs; Perpetual Calendar Watches with Chronographs; Calendar Watches; World Time Watches; Dual Time Zone Watches; Minute Repetition Watches; Bibliography; Short Chronology.

New Castle, Delaware Oak Knoll Press 2002 1584560762 / 9781584560760 Limited Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good- 
313 pp, 9" H. From an edition of 1,700 copies, of which 950 were for sale. B&w photographs, repro-ductions. "Anthony Rota, dealer in antiquarian books and first editions for over half a century, talks of the private collectors and university libraries whose collectiions he has helped to enrich over these years, remembering his colleagues in the firm and in the trade generally. His early training under Bertram Rota, and the history of the firm since the latter's early death, are followed by telling com-mentaries on virtually all aspects of the trade, including runners (scouts), auctions (and auction rings), and the problems of buying privately or in competition. As past president of the Antiquarian Book-sellers' Association, and of the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (of which he is now President of Honour), these lightly written memoirs, may be read as a guide to collectors and dealers alike, or, more simply, for the sheer pleasure of their reading." Book is slightly cocked, small area of minor fading at bottom of front board. Dust jacket has light fading to spine, top edge of flaps and 1' band at top of front panel; minor edge wrinkling.
