Item:254470035746So far as I am aware—and I do not claim that my research has been exhaustive—there are no works in existence which deal exclusively with the long-case clock, or " Grandfather” clock as it is more usually termed. In many otherwise excellent horological studies, detailed observations on the long-case clock have had to be curtailed to suit the limits of a normal volume; as a result it has become somewhat inconvenient and expensive to gather together the informative opinions which have been offered about our particular subject. I trust that my modest contribution will help to remedy this state of affairs.
