800 sundials of the Antiquity are known and preserved in museums. There are tens of thousands of them in Europe built between the Middle Ages and today. France alone has more than 32,000. The vast majority of them are still in operation on churches, in gardens, on public buildings or on private houses.

A unique synthesis of gnomonics, this richly illustrated book allows readers to discover all the facets of an instrument that goes back to the beginnings of astronomy.
