History often makes mistakes," Jehan assured him. "Master Zacharius never received credit for the fusee, because there was a man named Jacob the Czech who worked in Prague, and Prague is a far better source of fame than poor Geneva. I do not charge this Jacob with theft, mind, for the device is obvious enough once a man's mind turns in that direction, just as your pendulum-clock might be. There may well be another man who has already made the discovery - in Florence, say, or Vienna - whose discovery has not yet been communicated to the other great cities of Europe.
There was only one thing new about the fusee I discarded, and that was its material. It was brass, not iron; it did not rust, but if it worked any better as a regulator than any other it was by virtue of the JEHAN THUN'S QUEST 33 quality of its workmanship, not the detail of its design. The one I have made is better adapted to its own mechanism; it could not regulate a watchspring any more than a pendulum could drive the hand of a watch. On the other hand, what you say is perfectly true: there are a hundred clockmakers in every city in Europe who would be eager to know what might be done with my mechanism, and you shall share in the profits that will accrue from the dissemination of the secret if you will help me finish my work.
