"Geared to the Stars: The Evolution of Planetariums, Orreries and Astronomical Clocks" by Henry C. King
I believe this is considered to be one of the most definitive works on the subject. You will find this book selling online for $300 and more.

Good condition with slightly torn dust jacket. Hardback with spine that is straight and firm. No loose pages. There are a couple of marks where a previous owner had written his name. No other marks in the book that I have detected. 442 pages, over 300 illustrations. University of Toronto Press, 1978.

From the Dust Jacket:
"Traces the complete history of geared planetary machines from the inventions of Archimedes to the astronomical clocks of the present day. Based upon personal examination of numerous machines, instruments and clocks exhibited in public collections in Europe and North America and on a study of those described in scientific literature. The book is the only work of its kind, and its thoroughness assures it a lasting claim to the description.”

US Sale only. Book will be carefully packed and shipped free in the CONUS. Paypal only and I will absorb the fee.
