Rory McEvoy

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    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).
