Much of the collaborative study of John Harrison’s unique pendulum clock system that informs many of the papers in this volume has consisted of decoding the pertinent information contained within a curious publication written by Harrison in 1775. The full title of this work is: A Description concerning such Mechanism as will afford a nice, or true Mensuration of time; together with some Account of the Attempts for the Discovery of the Longitude by the Moon: as also an Account of the Discovery of the Scale of Music (Harrison, 1775).
