J.A. Neale Joseph and Thomas Windmills, Antiquarian Horological Society, 1999.
A dial of related design, with Joseph Windmills' distinctive star calendar and also engraved with cornucopiae is illustrated p.171, fig.5.60.
One of the pre-eminent makers of the latter part of the 17th and beginning of the 18th century, Joseph Windmills origins are obscure, but Jim Neale (op.cit) suggests a date of birth in the period 1640/50. In 1671 he was a Free Brother in the Clockmakers' Company. He was then made Assistant in 1691, Warden in 1699 and Master in 1702. He first worked at St. Martins le Grand and by 1687 was at Mark Lane End, Tower Street.
