Hi:

While trying to learn about pendulum barometric compensation I came across a 
Google book that's very interesting.  Has minutes of the R.A.S. and other 
meetings at the time just after Greenwich was selected to be the keeper of 
time.  Here is a link to it:
<http://books.google.com/books?id=2FUKAAAAIAAJ&pg=PA366&lpg=PA366&dq=clock+pendulum+atmospheric+pressure+compensation&source=web&ots=hB2VVqo5Da&sig=G6a-IWDmH16iDyMfd9Cp76nO3tg#PPA1,M1>
Since there were no ISBN or other catalog numbers used back then it's awkward 
to have a simple reference to it.

I also have the link on my Self Winding Clock Co. web page:

Google is archiving books that are in the public domain and making them 
available as free downloads, or to be viewed on line at

Have Fun,
