Walker & Company. New York. 1995. 1st edition.10th printing. In 1714 the British Parliament offered a handsome fee of 20,000 pounds (today's equivalent of US$12 million) to the first person to solve the vexing problem of the longitude problem. A back room boffin, made and perfected a number of clocks and eventually a watch that where so accurate that they solved this problem - even Captain Cook with H4 found that the system worked. Then the fun started trying to get the money out of the grasp of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, the Royal Navy, The Royal Society, The Astronomer Royal and every man and his dog. The King intervened and the money paid out, not to the hapless, now deceased, brilliant inventor but his son. Mint condition. Original dust jacket over brown cloth covered end boards. 184pp. 195 x 120 mm
