This chapter focuses on Rupert's life from 1921 to 1923. Rupert's ‘spare time’ in the years 1922 and early 1923 were spent completing work on The Marine Chronometer, its History and Development. Research had begun in 1919 and, in his Preface, the author lists the comprehensive catalogue of sources he studied and credits the many people he received help from. The chapter also details Rupert's friendship with American horological collector and historian Paul Mellen Chamberlain, publication of Rupert's book in 1923, and the marketing of the book and reviews.

Keywords:   Rupert Gould, chronometers, Paul Mellen Chamberlain
