    ‘The Accomplishment of Many Years’: Three Notes Towards a History of the Sand-Glass.A. J. Turner - 1982 - Annals of Science 39 (2):161-172.
    The first note examines current assumptions about the medieval origins of the sand-glass and underlines the defective nature of our knowledge. The second note suggests a possible etymology for an unusual fifteenth-century English term for the instrument. The third note assembles such evidence as can be found on the price of sand-glasses and the structure of the trade that produced them.
