This vintage book contains a detailed description of a clock allegedly powered by perpetual motion, complete with diagrams, explanations, and photographs. Although true perpetual motion is still considered impossible, this volume will appeal to those with an interest in the various historical attempts to bring the concept to fruition. Contents include: "Dream of Ages Realised", "Perpetual Force", "A Practical Invention", "A Truly Wonderful Invention", "What Does Perpetual Motion Mean?", "Napoleon's Fatal Error", "Flying Machines Everywhere", "America! Land of Opportunities", "Stimulus to Inventive Genius", "Perpetual Motion, the Study of Ages", "When Nature is Ready", et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of clocks and watches. First published in 1911.
