-THE ORIGINAL-

The original instrument, dated 1634, is in private ownership of Mr. Sigiswald Kuijken. Reinhard Ossenbrunner had already measured it when I came to work for him. I made several instruments in his workshop. He gave me permission to use his data further in my own workshop

-ABOUT PIERRE PREVOST-

The first time the name Pierre Prevost is mentioned, is 1-2-1607. He then started to work for Antoine Despont in Paris at "Rue des Arcis". In 1615 he rented together with his companion Nicolas Houdot a house and workshop also in Paris. In 1618 his son Antoine was baptised. Godfather was Antoine Despont. He then already lives again at "Rue des Arcis". After 1635 his name is often be seen in apprenticeship-contracts. On 27-12-1638 we hear from him for the last time. Still living in the Rue des Arcis, he makes his son Jaques Rene Voboam's apprentice.
