Notes:
A pamphlet issued, "In Pursuance of the Trades Marks' Act, 1875" "Messrs. E. Dent & Co. beg to notify to their friends and the public, that for the purpose of preventing fraudulent imitation of the horological and other instruments of their manufacture, they have found it necessary to protect them by a distinctive "Mark", and have, therefore, under the above Act, registered the device DENT (within triangle). Every instrument constructed by them, after and including No. 38,000, has this "Mark", and without it any instrument will be spurious." Apart from the above announcement, the pamphlet continues, "A short summary of the principal works executed by the House since its foundation will be found in the following pages." There follows a list (pp.3-22) of the major achievements of the Dent Co. between 1814 and 1879. There are 15 illustrations of Dent's improvements, patents and achievements including 3 fold out pages, one of the Great Westminster Clock, the other of the movement of "The Primary Standard Timekeeper of the United Kingdom, (Greenwich).", and "The Great Galvanic Chronographic Apparatus, (Greenwich).
