Book – Metronomes and Musical Time – Tony Bingham and Anthony Turner

This book is a sure read for metronome collectors or anyone who is interested in metronomes and their history. The paperback, with 224 pages, contains over 400 plates, almost all in colour. It includes pictures of the 179 metronomes in the collection that was on display at the ‘auf Takt!’ exhibition at the Basel Music Museum in 2017.
But that’s not all. The first 60+ pages contain an extremely detailed history of the metronome with notes and diagrams written by Anthony Turner. So, it is bound to answer any niggling questions about how time was marked before the metronome, who invented the metronome, how it worked and further developments to these initial inventions.
