In this first-ever biography of R. T. Gould, Jonathan Betts, Senior Horologist at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, offers a compelling account of this unique man.

Drawing on unpublished journals, an extensive family archive of photographs, and Gould's own notes, Betts describes how Gould's life came together in the restoration of Britain's and the world's most important and complex mechanical aid to navigators.
