Thanks, John - and good to hear from you. Sounds as thought you got some interesting stuff from the V&A, although I've probably seen most of it by now in the course of my researches.
The encylopaedia must be around 1875 or 1880 in date, and probably once quite common. But no positive identifications yet
We're heading back to Perth in a fortnight - may see you at ANZAB?

> Hello Chris,
Chris, I have a photo copy of the Warners Chiming unit dated 1863.
It was published in and related to the "International Exhibition 1862.
Reports by The Juries in the 36 classes into which the exhibition was
This also included prints of other goods manufactured by Warners.
e.g lamps, goffering machine, crimping machine, urns, swing kettles, gun
metal water gauge and even steam whistles of all sizes were available.
The chiming machine was on page 129.
The V&A were kind enough to send me copies relating to Warners in 1997.
This all came about when I mentioned that the bells were safe in the tower
of St Matthews in the City.
