Overview

This early collection on 'Chester County Clocks' is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of all horologists. Extensively illustrated with text and full page photographs, its chapters include discussions of: 'The Parts of a Grandfather Clock', as well as biographies and information on 'Individual Clockmakers and Clocks' - David M. Anderson, Canby & Nielson, Joseph Cave, Benjamin Chandlee, Sr, Benjamin Chandler, Caleb Hibbard, Joshua Humphrey, John Murphy, Henry Olwine and John Way, being but a few. Many old works such as this are increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that this book is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the subject.
