With one hundred and thirty-seven clocks from the 18th and 19th centuries, the Parnassia Collection is, by its quality and importance, one of the greatest private collections of figurative clocks in the world. The models were chosen for their aesthetics, the quality of their cases and their perfect condition.

Richly illustrated, this magnificent book by Jean-Dominique Augarde, art historian and renowned specialist in clocks and Parisian bronze makers, is divided into two volumes: the first one is devoted to the ninety-one classical clocks, illustrating the sculptural art of Parisian bronzeworkers at its heyday. The second volume is the first reference book on clocks with African figures, called «pendules au Noir», which are studied in a new way, rejecting stereotyped interpretations.
