Item:202839786444In this book, Clifford Brewer surveys a wide range of concise information for both collectors and those interested in the whole field of horology. There are accounts of the most famous clockmakers and one chapter is devoted entirely to early mechanical timekeeping. The author discusses longcase clocks and bracket clocks in depth with a wealth of detail so essential in dating clocks. Clocks of the nineteenth century are included and simple maintenance and care are also covered. The glossary of technical terms and the list of almost 2,000 British maker's names, dates and locations make this little guide invaluable.
