This truly comprehensive and practical new work is the first book to be devoted solely to the repair and restoration of the carriage clock, and as such will be greatly welcomed by professional and amateur alike. It describes the variety of movements found in the clocks that were produced by the thousand in France. The details of the simple timepiece, strikers, alarms, quarter repeaters, and grande sonnerie are shown and discussed here. Over 220 detailed and accurate drawings display the operation of the more complex parts and the text describes symptoms, faults, and corrections of each type of movement in turn, with other chapters on tools, major repair techniques, cleaning, maintenance, and a list of suppliers of materials.
