Pamphlet concerning the square watch of Marie Touchet (1549-1638).

Note by Ilbert within as follows:

"See Baillies' Watches.  This watch illustrated Fig. 1, Plate XXVI.  Loan in Louvre.  Pamphlet consists mostly of biography of Marie Touchet but I fail to see what watch has to do with her.  Anyway it is much after her time."
