American Genius Nineteenth Century Bank Locks and Time Locks
Auteur:Erroll, David and John
New York / 2006
Clothbound, 368 pages, over 400 color photographs.
Designed to protect Americas riches from every threat, these beautiful devices embody the evolution of lock technology during the nineteenth century, its most creative period. Many of the hand-crafted masterpieces are decorated with beautiful engraving and casting, despite the fact that their mechanical interiors would rarely be seen. They reflect the great pride in creative workmanship and the mechanical genius that characterized America at the time. Here for the first time is a comprehensive compendium of these marvels of complexity and their fascinating history. Stunning photographs by Anne Day and learned text by the authors illuminate a remarkable but little-known chapter in American technological achievement.
