Antique Barometers

By Edwin Banfield. First written in 1976, this simple layman's introduction to collecting barometers has been a consistent paperback seller through the years.

Antique Barometers

Very little has been written about the domestic mercurial and android barometer and this prompted the author to write this illustrated survey in the hope that it will widen the knowledge and understanding of barometers generally and, perhaps increase their popularity. It may appeal particularly to the layman who possesses or wishes to acquire one, and to the antique dealer who, in the past, has hesitated to stock barometers because of the problems that can arise when they are not handled correctly. The author traces the history of the cistern tube, angle tube, mariner wheel and android barometer, with the help of more than 100 illustrations, and gives advice on how they should be handled and maintained. Most types of barometer still available are illustrated and the book contains useful information to assist in dating them.
