American Genius Nineteenth Century Bank Locks and Time Locks

By JOHN ERROLL, DAVID ERROLL, ANNE DAY


Photographs by Anne Day

Designed to protect America’s riches from every threat, these beautiful devices embody the evolution of lock technology during the nineteenth century, its most creative period. Many of the hand-crafted masterpieces are decorated with beautiful engraving and casting, despite the fact that their mechanical interiors would rarely be seen. They reflect the great pride in creative workmanship and the mechanical genius that characterized America at the time. Here for the first time is a comprehensive compendium of these marvels of complexity and their fascinating history. Stunning photographs by Anne Day and learned text by the authors illuminate a remarkable but little-known chapter in American technological achievement.

Publication coincides with an exhibit of bank locks from the Mossman Collection at the gallery of General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen in New York City in October.



JOHN ERROLL is the curator of the John Mossman Lock Collection. A retired clinical psychologist with a doctoral degree from Adelphi University, he lives on Long Island.

DAVID ERROLL shares his father’s interest in time locks. An attorney with a law degree from the University of Chicago, he divides his time between New York City and Long Island.

ANNE DAY is a noted photographer whose most recent work appeared in The United States Capitol: Its Architecture and Decoration by Henry Hope Reed.

Publish date: October 2006
8 1/2 x 10 inches and over 400 color photographs and 408 pages of history!
