*There are many good books written on this subject but a little known example has been brought to my attention. The author is Mrs. Jean May who has painstakingly produced a book entitled "Aianos Remenbered". Being a decendant of these well known barometer makers she has compiled this work of 104 pages tracing the history and examples of the family and it is a fascinating read as well as an incredible reference work. It is the culmination of years of dedicated research and can be purchased for £12.00 plus P & P from:
